Early Elementary Education
The skills students learn in early childhood are critical for success in elementary school — and teachers play an essential role during this time of growth and exploration. York College’s Early Elementary Education program (EEE) gives future teachers like you the tools needed to lead your own classroom.
As an Early Elementary Education major, you’ll learn about cognitive, social, emotional, language, and literacy development in children from birth to age 9. You’ll learn strategies to support a wide range of students, including children with special needs and English language learners (ELLs). And through it all, you’ll be guided by faculty with real-world experience in K-12 classrooms.
York College students get field experience early in the program. Plus, you’ll end your final semester with student teaching. By the time you graduate, you’ll have planned and taught lessons, managed classrooms, and made lasting connections with potential employers. You’ll also be prepared for licensure in pre-K through grade 4.
