The BS degree in early childhood education is a career-oriented program that prepares students to earn their Minnesota teacher's license, a professional licensure that allows teaching young children from birth through third grade. Graduates of this teacher education program design, implement, and evaluate developmentally appropriate learning experiences for young children in a variety of early childhood settings. They are prepared to work collaboratively with families and in the community. Significant opportunities for professional positions exist in these educational programs: infant and toddler care and education, preschool programs, K-3 classrooms, Head Start, and early childhood family education. This degree program has two areas of emphasis--primary education and program management. Students who expect to apply for teacher licensure must complete the primary education emphasis. Graduates with the primary education emphasis demonstrate competencies as described in the MN Board of Teaching, Rules 8710.3000, Standard for Teachers of Early Childhood Education (ECE) and in MN Rules 8710.2000, Standards for Effective Practice for all Teachers.
