Welcome to the Graduate Programs
Early Childhood Education
The City College School of Education!
Our programs are designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge of child development, childhood learning, and teaching skills for young children ages birth through eight. They lead to New York State certification in Early Childhood Education, a requirement that must be met by anyone working as a head teacher in any early childhood setting, including those intending to work in grades preK-2 in public elementary schools. Please explore this website to find out more about the program. Please contact Beverly Falk, the Program Director, for any assistance you may need.
