Inspire young children’s curiosity, confidence, and joy of discovery.
At Lesley, we believe in the competence and curiosity of young children. In this program, you'll prepare to meet their unique needs and inspire in them a lifelong love of learning. And you'll discover how to prepare them for elementary school and to take part as citizens.
During your study, you'll explore how children develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, and morally. Learn how family and community enhance learning. Gain strategies for supporting English language learners and children with special needs. Through anti-bias education, you'll also see what it takes to create a fair and caring classroom community.
Study literature, arts, math, science, and social studies for PreK-2 students. Develop curriculum ideas and teaching strategies to use in your student teaching experience. Put feedback from your supervising teachers and faculty to immediate use.
You'll graduate with the experience needed for a rewarding career in PreK–2 classrooms. Employers in Massachusetts prefer to hire Lesley graduates, saying they are best prepared to enter the classroom on day one.
