The Early Childhood Major (P-4)
The Early Childhood Education major at Lyon is Nationally Recognized by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). It is designed to prepare students to be effective, committed, caring teachers on the early childhood level. Through a course of study grounded in the liberal arts, the major, which is taken concurrently with a liberal arts major, fosters intellectual skills, humane instincts, and an understanding of both the material to be taught and the developmental processes of children.
Students wishing to major in Early Childhood Education must be formally admitted by the Liberal Arts Teacher Education Committee. Students interested in early childhood licensure may choose from some of the liberal arts majors offered at Lyon to accompany this major.
