Birth through Kindergarten
The Birth through Kindergarten program prepares graduates to work with children and families in a variety of settings. Candidates in this program observe and work with infants, toddlers, preschool, and kindergarten children in public and private settings. Graduates of the Birth through Kindergarten program are prepared for employment in Head Start programs, private child care programs, public schools, and other child-centered agencies or businesses. The program offers a teaching (Teacher Education) and non-teaching concentration (Child, Family, and Community). Successful completion of the Teacher Education concentration will qualify students to apply to the State of North Carolina for an initial teacher license in Birth through Kindergarten.
