The early childhood minor prepares elementary education students to be endorsed in preschool and kindergarten. Students complete a halfday, five-week student teaching experience for preschool and a full-day, five-week student teaching experience for kindergarten.
Many school districts require endorsements for those who wish to teach either preschool or kindergarten.
Students with elementary education certification and an early childhood minor will be qualified to teach preschool in home or childcare settings, as well as in public and private schools. Additionally, they will have the endorsement to teach kindergarten.
