Elementary & Early Childhood Education

The early years of a child's education are among the most critical of their educational careers, and the demand for talented, qualified teachers in their classrooms is tremendous. At Minnesota State Mankato, we make sure you develop both the skills and the sensitivity necessary to give the youngest learners the best start possible.

Our program prepares you to serve the needs of all students. We work on developing culturally responsive teaching styles and combine evidence-based practice and real-world experience in actual classrooms to sharpen your instructional strategies with students of any ability or background. You will also receive a solid foundation of literacy skills and reading teacher preparation, as well as a strong base of knowledge in science, mathematics and social studies.

Our goal is to ensure that every young learner develops the 21st century skills they'll need to succeed by preparing you to be the best elementary or early childhood teacher possible.
