Preschool-3rd Grade P-3 Early Childhood Education Teacher Preparation Program
The Pre-Kindergarten to 3rd Grade (P-3) Early Childhood Education Teacher Preparation program prepares students for a career in teaching young children. Course work for this program is designed to maximize in-classroom mentorship and to provide a broad range of exposure from Pre-K to 3rd Grade. This competitive program within the Child Development Concentration in the Human Development and Family Studies Department is approved by the New Hampshire State Board of Education. Reciprocity of the P-3 certification with other states varies, so students interested in teaching in others states should contact each state directly.
This program requires 68 credits of pre-approved departmental and supporting course work. Requirements and instructions for the application process for this program are detailed below. Students who wish to be considered for the P-3 program must indicate their interest at the time of application to the major so that an appropriate plan of study can be arranged. Students should apply during their junior year - for senior year internships.
