The Early Childhood Education program at the Lander University includes study and practice of specialized teaching methods appropriate for young children and a broad range of content preparation.


At Lander University, we work closely with public school officials to maintain a curriculum that enables you to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of teaching. As an Early Childhood Education student in our teacher education program, you'll take a sequence of courses from general education, specialized content, professional education and a series of field experiences that culminate with student teaching.

All teacher education programs at Lander University are guided by Lander’s conceptual framework for teacher education. The framework is built on the conceptual model of the “Professional Educator” as one who demonstrates these Learner Outcomes: 

The Professional Educator

  • integrates content knowledge and skills of scholarly inquiry to teach all students;
  • plans, provides, and assesses learning experiences that are supported by research, knowledge of best practice and professional standards;
  • communicates and collaborates with diverse populations (students, educators, families and community members) exhibiting professional behaviors and dispositions; and
  • engages in reflection and professional development to foster student learning and inform instructional decisions.
