Make a positive difference in the life of a young child by training to become a teacher at the Monroe College School of Education.
Our Bachelor’s (BS) degree program in Early Childhood Education prepares students for careers as skilled educators in high-needs schools. Our experienced faculty of active and retired teachers, superintendents and education directors bring over 100 years of service to the classroom. They work one-on-one with students to help them grasp the diverse cognitive, cultural, developmental and linguistic needs of early childhood learners. Academic instruction is balanced with real-world training, working with children at local nursery schools, daycare facilities and special needs schools.
In February 2015, Monroe's School of Education will also offer the Child Development Associate (CDA) Certificate, which is a professional credential that is recognized by early childhood educators nationwide and is often a requirement for hiring or advancement. The CDA will provide a specialized training opportunity for entry-level professionals (early childhood educators, assistant teachers, and family childcare providers) or veterans in the field who want to enhance their skills in working with young children from birth through five years.
The Monroe College CDA credential will be organized and administered by the Council for Professional Recognition.
