LAS Childhood Education
The Liberal Arts and Sciences: Childhood Education A.A. degree prepares students to become thoughtful and effective elementary school teachers in grades 1 through 6. Students will focus on understanding children through their strengths and interests in order to plan meaningful and relevant curriculum. They will consider the importance of collaborating and partnering with children and families to ensure that the classroom is fully engaging and inclusive. With a strong emphasis on the observation of children, students examine practices that best support children’s emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs. Students will develop a personal philosophy of education that will incorporate the work of important theorists and researchers, as well as their own experiences. Seminar style classes ensure that all students in the program have the opportunity to participate thoughtfully in their college experience.
