Early Childhood Education (Pre K-4)
Alvernia University is dedicated to the ideals of service in the helping professions. Alvernia’s Early Childhood Education (Pre K-4) program prepares teachers to serve and to value a diverse group of young children and families in a variety of educational settings, which is of growing importance in today’s schools. It combines a sound liberal arts background with field work and studies in human growth and development, curriculum, methods, and materials. Designed to meet new Pennsylvania State Department of Education and national standards, the program prepares students for certification in early childhood education focusing on the learning needs of children through age nine.
