Teacher Certification Program for Pre K- 4 Teachers Offered at CU Center City Facility

January 7, 2013

Cheyney University Center City is accepting applicants for the Teacher Certification program which is offered at the Cheyney University site in the Mellon Building at 701 Market Street in Philadelphia.  Completion of the program will result in certification for grade Pre-K-4 teachers. For the convenience of the adult student, all programs are offered in the evenings, and/or Saturdays to ensure optimum flexibility. Students will study in an environment in which faculty and staff understand the challenges of balancing a job and family with attending class, and will support you accordingly. 

The Early Childhood Education Program at Cheyney University Center City is planned to develop candidates who are reflective decision-makers, collaborative change agents, and effective practitioners capable of making informed decisions about the learning environments in which children flourish emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically. Students engage in designing and implementing developmentally appropriate activities for children. 
 
In addition, the students develop the competencies necessary to develop effective relationships with other teaching personnel, parents, and community agencies. They review research and current trends and practice strategies for administering child care services.The early childhood program is designed to accommodate the age of the developing child from birth to Grade 4. The format provides an in-depth, coordinated study of the infant-toddler, preschooler, and early elementary school age children.
 
Candidates for the B.S. Degree in Early Childhood are eligible to pursue teacher certification in grades Pre-K-4 through the Pennsylvania teacher certification testing program.
