Little hearts and minds grow up to become family, community, and world leaders. Help shape future generations with an Early Childhood Education Degree from NGU.
Experience Learning Outside the Classroom
It All Starts with Observation
Engage in public school settings right off the bat. Observe teachers and students in actual classrooms. Examine and discuss various case studies. Enrich your experience through specialized school visits.
Serve Students in Their Communities
Experience life beyond the classroom as you complete a 10-hour service project. Better understand the needs of at-risk students while serving their real-world communities.
Practice What You Teach
Study. Observe. Engage. Then teach! Before you graduate, complete at least one full teaching semester in a South Carolina public school setting. Now that’s hands-on experience!
The Final Step: Acing Those Interviews
The transition from learner to leader takes practice. Prepare to launch your career as you develop interview skills and practice the interview process with local public-school principals.
Study All Aspects of Early Childhood Education
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
