In this developmentally-based early childhood Master's program you'll discover new ways to optimize early childhood learning.
Children are curious—they want to learn. Build on their natural curiosity by discovering new ways to optimize early childhood learning. Develop your skills in observing and interpreting students’ behavior as both individual and group learners and obtain a well-rounded perspective on young children and how they learn.
This M.Ed. program will provide you with pedagogical skills, knowledge of developmental learning and language and literacy, and connections with families and communities.
Students build upon theory and practice of teaching math, science, and health through planning and implementation of integrated curriculum. Adaptation for all learners, assessment as a tool for improved teaching, and empowering children to be successful problem solvers and investigators will be emphasized. Student-designed curriculum will reflect developmentally appropriate practices. Additionally, students will identify their own strengths and define personal goals for designing math, science, and health experiences and facilitating young children’s learning.
