Graduate Curriculum - Early Childhood Education

There are several academic pathways that you may follow upon entry to the graduate program in early childhood education. Which one you choose is dependent upon your individual professional goals.

The birth-to-kindergarten or pre-K-to-grade 3 curricula prepare you for entry into the profession of teaching and lead to initial certification in the State of Connecticut.

The general curriculum without certification is designed to provide students with graduate level study in early childhood education. This program is right for you if you intend to teach in early childhood programs or work in agencies in which certification is not required. The Birth to Three Partnership Curriculum would be appropriate entering the Connecticut Birth to Three workforce. In addition, teachers utilize the general curriculum without certification to meet professional licensure requirements.

Montessori - The College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions developed a collaborative curriculum that results in a Master of Education in Early Childhood Education with a focus in Montessori. If you are interested in this curriculum, you must first be admitted to the Montessori Training Center of New England.
