Mission Statement

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Early Childhood Education (ECED) program is designed to prepare individuals who are seeking initial certification in grades PreK-3. This program is developed specifically to address all National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accreditation standards for initial certification programs. The B.S. in ECED program enables Winthrop students to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that will prepare them to meet the diverse needs and challenges within our global society. Winthrop graduates are well prepared to assume teaching careers, as well as enroll in highly competitive graduate schools or professional schools. Early Childhood teacher candidates will demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions in Early Childhood by mastery of the standards of their professional association, the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
