M.A in Early Childhood Education: In-Service Adelphi University


Course info


The Early Childhood Education Program is committed to the growth and well-being of children from birth to eight years of age. The program is also dedicated to the professional education and personal development of early childhood education professionals who will use their moral purpose and vision to advocate for children. In guiding young children’s learning and development, early childhood education professionals must sensitively interact with a diversity of populations: the young child, parents, guardians, paraprofessionals, community organizations, and others whose actions affect children. Moreover, they must meet the needs and demands of diverse communities and cultivate intellectually vital, socially just, and aesthetically rich individuals.

The Early Childhood Education Program envisions the teacher as a professional educator who understands the vulnerability of the early years and realizes the impact of these early experiences on later development and learning. The Early Childhood Education Program offers a course of study designed to engage education professionals in collaborative work that is interdisciplinary, and inquiry-based. In-class didactic experiences and activities, field-work placements and student teaching are all planned to increase candidate awareness and sensitivity to the development of children and to provide insight into the physical, social, emotional, cultural, intellectual and creative life of a child.
