About

The importance of the early years has become evident, and new opportunities have emerged for well trained early childhood professionals.

Overview

    • The transdisciplinary early childhood education program brings professionals from a variety of disciplines together to share information and develop expertise that benefits young children.

    • At the University of Dayton, learning to be a teacher is about building learning communities through critical reflection. Because fields in the School of Education & Health Sciences require you to interact with others — and perhaps profoundly affect their lives — it's important for you to gain both knowledge and skills. Thus, whatever major you choose in the Department of Teacher Education, valuable real-world experiences are part of the curriculum.
