The dynamic Early Childhood Teacher Education Program at Ohio Dominican University prepares future teachers for pre-kindergarten through grade 3. Early on, students in our Early Childhood program interact with teachers and children in local classrooms. Our program develops reflective, problem-solving, caring teachers who have the knowledge and the skills to be effective and passionate early childhood educators. Students in ODU's program are provided the opportunity to acquire a P-12 reading endorsement and a generalist endorsement to teach grades 4 and 5. Our Early Childhood Education Program is nationally recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
