The M.A.E. in Early Childhood Education/Teacher Leader program, offered by The School of Teacher Education, is designed to prepare educators to create and plan experiences and instruction that support the development and learning of infants, toddlers, preschool children, and kindergarten children (birth through five years), and their families, including those with disabilities.

The ECE teacher is charged with creating and maintaining learning environments in a variety of settings that support development and learning of students (B-5). Learning and development of infants, toddlers, preschool children, and kindergarten is assessed regularly in collaboration with colleagues, and the results are communicated to families. The MAE in ECE also prepares candidates to provide support for families through family-centered services that promote independence and self-determination.

Please note: The M.A.E. in Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education/Teacher Leader program, offered by The School of Teacher Education is approximately 80% online. The program utilizes a variety of delivery formats, including web delivery, face-to-face courses, and IVS courses available at Regional Campus locations.
