About the Early Childhood Bilingual/ESL Certificate

You will begin the program in January or May and complete it in 16 months. You also will complete a two-semester reflective practice seminar, in which you will discuss and examine your experiences with your peers and a faculty mentor, and get ideas for your classroom that you can implement immediately.

The biggest thing teachers and administrators need to understand is the better a child learns her or his first language, the better she or he will learn their second language.

Should I pursue the Bilingual or ESL endorsement?

Bilingual endorsement

国产偷拍视频If you are bilingual and wish to instruct young children in their native language and in English, then you should seek the Bilingual endorsement.

Our certificate program is designed for certified teachers who wish to continue to work or seek employment in an early childhood Bilingual program. Because each state has its own standards for Bilingual endorsement/approval, you should contact the Board of Education in the state where you plan to teach for its requirements.

English as a Second Language endorsement

国产偷拍视频If you speak only English and wish to instruct new language learners in English, then you should seek the ESL endorsement.

Our certificate program is designed for certified teachers who wish to continue to work or seek employment in an early childhood ESL program. Because each state has its own standards for ESL endorsement/approval, you should contact the Board of Education in the state where you plan to teach for its requirements.

  • Preschools
