The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program area focuses on the social, academic, cultural, racial and political intersections of young children entering grades preschool – 3rd grade. Our area features nationally recognized scholars working on early childhood policy, pedagogy, curriculum and training. We provide a comprehensive approach to mentoring graduate students through teaching and research so that they can successfully pursue careers addressing the local and global issues facing young children. Our students are committed to improving early childhood education for an increasingly diverse group of young children and demonstrating the importance of dynamic, engaging, high quality, culturally relevant early childhood learning environments.
