Program Overview

The purpose of the early childhood undergraduate program at Rhode Island College is to develop early childhood professionals prepared to effectively serve as teachers in the field of early care and education. The undergraduate teacher candidates will develop an understanding of the connection to current best practice through research and application of evolving skills through coursework and practicum experiences.

The early childhood undergraduate teacher preparation program is designed to prepare teachers to enter the work force in the early care and education field. Through the coursework and field experiences all candidates will develop knowledge of how children grow and develop from birth through age eight; and use that knowledge to create learning environments and experiences for young children that promote a constructivist strategy. Candidates will develop an understanding and appreciation that each child is an individual with strengths and challenges; recognizing that each child comes from a unique family configuration that is embedded in its own social and cultural context within the larger diverse society and culture we live and work in.
