Sample Degree Map for B.S.Ed. Early Childhood Education (Birth-2)
The B.S.E.d. Early Childhood Education degree prepares graduates to work with children ages 0-8 years. Graduates become certified in New York State to teach children from Birth to Grade 2. The Early Childhood program prepares candidates to understand the specific nature of the unique education needs of young children, how young children learn and develop and how that differs from older children. They are prepared to link and apply knowledge of child development content and teaching strategies to match young children’s ways of learning. Our program prepares candidates to fully understand and to support the importance of children’s earliest experiences in setting the foundation for their future success in schools.
