Minor in Early Childhood Education

Students in the ECE concentration earn a minor in Early Childhood Education, a practical, hands-on program to prepare students for advancing on the California Permit Matrix (birth to 5 years old) as well as for students who want to teach in the younger grades (TK-3) of an elementary school. The classes help develop professional experiences to work with children, families and communities.

This program caters to the working teacher and classes are offered online on Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. We utilize Zoom for synchronous and asynchronous sessions. The Minor begins in the Fall and can be earned in 3 semesters. Benefits of the program include a solid foundation in research and pedagogy delivered by an experienced and professional faculty.

Contact Dr. Valerie Helgren-Lempesis (valerie.helgren-lempesis@csueastbay.edu) for additional program information.
