Strong partnerships with schools

澳门六合彩规律论坛's Early Childhood Education program led the way in piloting a residency program, placing students in local classrooms, made possible by creating strong partnerships with area schools. As a part of Early Childhood Education (ECE) coursework, students complete field experiences in kindergarten through grade 3 classrooms to understand how young children learn to read, write, and apply math, science, and social studies concepts. Classroom teachers expect ECE students to be actively engaged, and they encourage them to try out teaching strategies so that they can become better teachers. By working with exemplary mentor teachers, students are prepared for the classroom when they graduate.

Learning from play

What looks like a really fun place to play with friends is actually a teaching laboratory for students in child development and early childhood education. The Child Development Center, with accredited programs for toddlers and preschool children, gives students opportunities to learn how children grow and develop through practical experiences. Students plan learning activities and engage with young children and their parents, while being mentored and supported by master early childhood teachers. In a setting that welcomes diversity and encourages parental involvement, future teachers get solid training in an enriched environment.
