Education: PreK - 4 Major

Education with Teaching Certification in Grades PreK-4 at Messiah College

Messiah’s early childhood (PreK- 4) education major curriculum provides you with a full-time, 12-week student-teaching experience and prepares you to pass your teaching certification (Praxis) exams.

Combine your passion for teaching the youngest learners (pre-kindergarten through grade 4) with the experiences you’ll gain through pre-student teaching at Messiah’s on-site National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)-accredited Early Learning Center (ELC) and also through our extensive, supervised field opportunities offered in a variety of school, classroom and demographic settings.

Our 100 percent pass rate on the Praxis II: Professional Knowledge Exam is just one indication of how well Messiah College prepares students for teaching certification and careers in Early Childhood Education. Human resource recruiters seek out Messiah graduates and school administrators who interview and hire our graduates give consistently positive feedback about their instructional design skills.
