BE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A YOUNG CHILD

As our nation begins to realize the importance of early childhood education to healthy development and academic achievement in later years, so grows the need for well-qualified educational professionals to nurture the intellectual and social development of young children.

Pace’s MST in Early Childhood Development, Learning, and Intervention will help you be an effective teacher to guide young children as they begin a lifelong exploration of the world around them. You will gain in-depth knowledge of the physical, cognitive, and language development of young children, and proficiency in the necessary skills of assessment and teaching methods for children from birth through age 8. Pace’s in-depth program and intensive field experiences will prepare you for success as a dually certified early childhood and special education teacher (birth through grade 2) in a variety of roles and community settings to impact the lives of young children and their families.

The school’s rigorous curriculum prepares students for success. Last year, 98 percent of Pace graduates passed the NY State Certification exams.
