OverviewTwo students participating in class

The Early Childhood Education certificate program is a fully accredited teacher certification program which prepares students to teach children in preschool through grade 2. Meeting the curriculum requirements at URI for the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program results in a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies (HDF). Successful completion of the Early Childhood Education certificate program and passing the Praxis II exams lead to teacher certification. Students have practicum experiences at the URI Child Development Centers, in urban settings, and in public schools.

 

Students with a strong academic background, a demonstrated interest in both teaching and young children, and a desire to share these interests with a diverse population of learners are encouraged to apply. In order to apply, please visit Applicant Information.
