Early Childhood Education

Early childhood focuses on the study of all children from birth through age eight. An Early Childhood (ZS) endorsement is increasingly becoming a requirement for employment in public and private school districts for kindergarten, first and second grades, and Headstart. This endorsement is required for state-funded four-year old preschool (GSRP) programs. Candidates with a ZS endorsement will also be able to teach in non-categorical early childhood special education (ECSE classrooms and Birth-3 home visiting programs).
