Teacher training

One major function of our school is training teachers of young children. Teacher candidates are undergraduate or graduate students who are studying early childhood education.

For a full semester, candidates work with a lead teacher to develop their teaching competencies.

As part of their experience, teacher candidates plan, implement, and evaluate individual, small group and large group activities. They are also expected to assume the responsibilities of the lead teacher for a number of weeks.

There are approximately 30 teacher candidates who work in the school each year.
