Because you'll be qualified for dual-licensure endorsement in both early childhood and elementary education, your course of study will provide you opportunities for a fuller understanding of children's developmental and learning stages, from birth through early adolescence. You will also be challenged to think critically, enhance your global awareness and be responsive to different ways of thinking and learning.
Fieldwork & Student Teaching
Learn through experience by connecting Early Childhood - Elementary Teacher Education classroom theories to practice. You'll engage in field placements and student teaching earlier in your college career than is typical. You'll progress from one day a week to full-time involvement in local schools by completing supervised field experiences in early childhood and elementary schools that link with each semester's coursework, and then spend the final semester of your senior year student-teaching under the support and direction of a classroom teacher and a Champlain instructor. Vermont offers a diverse number of educational settings, including rural, small-town and urban, that you can explore and find out which classroom setting is best for you. See where our students have interned and student-taught.
As part of the Early Childhood - Elementary Teacher Education program from Champlain College, you have the option to specialize in Educational Technology or Literature, and/or choose a minor in a number of relevant areas of study, such as Social Justice, Global Studies or Mathematics.
Build a Community
Our small class sizes allow you to create strong personal relationships with your professors and other education majors.
You can also deepen your understanding of diverse cultures by working with English Language Learners (ELLs) and taking advantage of service-learning opportunities locally and internationally.
