Students in the CCV Early Childhood Education A.A. program can pursue a UVM Early Childhood Education (Birth-Grade 3) B.S. in Education program.

The Early Childhood Education (EDEC) program provides students with a supportive yet rigorous environment, in which they develop the perspectives, knowledge, and skills, necessary to work effectively with families, co-professionals, and children from birth to grade 3, in a variety of classroom and community-based settings.

The program involves substantial field-based experiences and makes significant use of the UVM Campus Children's School and diverse community-based practicum sites. Graduates of the program, who successfully complete all requirements, are eligible for recommendation for initial teacher licensure and an endorsement to work with children Birth - Grade 3. Coursework is designed to promote students' abilities to:

  • Support children's learning and development within natural environments and inclusive settings
  • Recognize and respect the diversity of family structures, preferences, and participation levels
  • Offer instructional practices that are guided by and sensitive to the family and child, supported by meaningful assessment, and linked to developmentally and/or individually appropriate curricula
  • Foster collaborative relationships with family members, peers of the same discipline, and individuals across disciplines
