EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Everyone has a favorite teacher from childhood, that special person who encouraged and motivated you to do your best. As an Early Childhood Education graduate, you'll have the skills to teach preschool through grade three in public and private schools. And, because Xavier uses a holistic approach that emphasizes care for the whole person, you could become that special teacher for someone you have yet to meet.
