Early Childhood Education

Welcome to the Early Childhood Education Program at the University of Memphis! We are a part of the Instruction and Curriculum Leadership Department in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences.

About our Early Childhood Education Programs

The Early Childhood Education programs prepare educators for work with young children from birth through age eight years. The U of M Early Childhood teacher licensure programs and advanced Master's degree program for teachers and administrators are nationally recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children as meeting NAEYC standards.

ECEd teacher licensure programs are offered at both the undergraduate (BSEd) and graduate (MAT) levels for individuals seeking a license to teach in prekindergarten, kindergarten and primary grade settings. Advanced ECEd graduate programs include the Master of Science (MS) degree for teachers and other professionals seeking advanced preparation in Early Childhood, and the Doctor of Education (EdD) degree for those seeking teaching and research positions in colleges and universities.

ECEd program graduates are employed as prekindergarten, kindergarten, and primary grade teachers in public and private schools; as preschool and child care program directors and teachers; as early childhood coordinators and supervisors in schools; as early childhood specialists in public and private agencies serving the needs of young children, and as researchers and faculty in community colleges and universities.
