    Our Bachelor’s (BS) degree program in Early Childhood Education prepares students for careers as skilled educators in high-needs schools. Our experienced faculty of active and retired teachers, superintendents and education directors bring over 100 years of service to the classroom.

  • A Message from the Dean

    Welcome to Monroe College School of Education! Some people who don’t know about education think that choosing to be an early childhood teacher is an easy career or one that doesn’t really take college preparation. We know you don’t believe that and neither do we! Starting young children on the path to social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth is a very important career that takes knowledge of psychology, child development and learning theory as well as college level liberal arts. We’re impressed by your choice to help educate the next generation of children and are pleased you chose to study with us here at Monroe.

    So welcome to the start of the best career you could ever imagine. With hard work and our support, you’re ready to soar!

    Dr. Anne Lillis
