Why Early Childhood Education at Bay Path University ?

The Early Childhood Education curriculum includes courses in early literacy, motor development, math, science, and social and emotional development. This program will prepare you to teach pre-K through second grade. Bay Path University provides both a licensure and non-licensure program.

 As a student in the licensure program, you will:

  • Pursue an education that prepares you to teach children with and without disabilities in pre-K through grade two
  • Complete a supervised field-based pre-practicum and student teaching practicum in a public early childhood classroom
  • Gain a level of experience for field-based work that exceeds requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
  • Earn an initial license issued by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (license qualifies for reciprocity in states that participate in the Interstate Agreement and endorse similar licensure)
  • Develop the background necessary to pursue certification and licensure in other states

The non-licensure program is designed for students who do not wish to pursue public teaching certification, yet want to pursue a career working with young children or pursue a graduate degree in education or psychology.
