Students in the CCV Early Childhood Education A.A. program can pursue a UVM Early Childhood Special Education (Birth-Age 6) B.S. in Education program.

The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSP) program is designed to provide students with the perspectives and skills necessary to work with all young children from birth through age six and their families in a range of family-centered, culturally responsive, inclusionary and developmentally appropriate settings. These include the abilities to:

  • Promote children's learning and development within natural environments and/or 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 information, and linked to developmentally and/or individually appropriate curricula
  • Foster collaborative relationships with family members, peers of the same discipline, and individuals across disciplines

The ECSP program involves a large field-based component which makes significant use of the wide array of early intervention and early childhood services and supports within the campus community (UVM Campus Children's School and Trinity Children's Center) as well as throughout the local community and region.
