The early childhood education program at Kansas State University combines early childhood education and early childhood special education content knowledge and pedagogy into one blended degree program. Early childhood education students gain teaching experience in the licensed and nationally accredited Hoeflin Stone House early childhood education center on campus. Supervised, clinical internships working with families, infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, and student teaching are an integral part of the preservice licensure program. Upon full completion of degree requirements students are eligible to apply for a Kansas teaching license in early childhood unified (birth through kindergarten).
