Early Childhood Education

Welcome to the Early Childhood: Birth–Grade 6 program. Students complete the Elementary Education K-6 program with additional foundational coursework in early childhood education.

The Early Childhood program is for ambitious students who want to expand their licensure area to include students who are younger than kindergarten.

The students gain valuable field experience through WSU’s Children Center which provides students, faculty/staff and community members with customized quality, early education and care programs for children age six weeks through fourth grade at two sites.
