Early Childhood/Childhood Dual Program

Couple our two of our childhood education programs to broaden your professional horizons. Early Childhood and Childhood programs at Canisius are easily combined. In fact, many education majors obtain dual certifications.

The Early Childhood and Childhood program certifies graduates to teach children from birth through sixth grade. Teacher candidates can also add a middle childhood extension which allows them to teach additional grades levels within their chosen concentration to grade 9.

The professional sequence in the Early Childhood/ Childhood gives the prospective teacher a thorough foundation in the many facets of modern American education and a gradually increasing exposure to the realities of the classroom. A broad range of field experiences, from observation and tutoring to a full semester of student teaching, is an essential part of the curriculum. This program also includes an integrated sequence of subject-area courses offered by one or more of the academic departments at the college.
