 Gordon sets the bar for teaching reading; the systematic approach based on scientific research is a benchmark of excellence across the nation. And because special education training is embedded in the Early Childhood program from Gordon College, you will be prepared to teach across a wide range of ability levels.


Why study the Early Childhood program from Gordon College?

Gordon goes for 100. Gordon's intensely hands-on approach is just one of the reasons that 100 percent of our graduates promptly secure teaching positions, if they wish. Even before your full-time student teaching in your senior year, you will spend well over 100 hours in classroom settings, connecting content and methods to real-life learning. Add in broad liberal arts exposure, a second major for content mastery, and a firm Christian foundation, and you will be holistically prepared to excel as an effective teacher.

What careers can I pursue with an early childhood education major?

Because of Gordon’s strong emphasis on practical classroom experience, you will be highly qualified for an initial Massachusetts teaching license (and comparable license in all 50 states and U.S. territories), and for a wide range of teaching positions across the country and around the globe, including:

  • Public schools
