The Early Childhood program will offer you optimum field experiences throughout your course of study that allow for a variety of experiences in the different levels of Elementary Education grades P-5. Through these field experiences, there are many opportunities to experience and practice implementing the various technologies in the classroom.
We also offer a Reading Endorsement upon certification in the state of Georgia that includes the interstate agreement. For two additional courses, you can also earn the highly recommended ESOL Endorsement that most districts favor when considering hiring potential teachers. This endorsement will prepare you to function as a classroom teacher equipped to work with English Language Learners. This endorsement broadens your classroom teaching possibilities to include an ESOL teacher.
Our Early Childhood program offers classes that are small, allowing instructors to provide you more quality, individual attention. Upon completion of the program, you will receive your initial certification for the state of Georgia, preparing you for the upcoming expected job openings projected nationally.
The Teacher Education major in Early Childhood will equip you with knowledge of the diverse learners and the content they teach, skills in planning instruction, assessing, and managing, and character reflecting appropriate interaction with the school community, life-long learning and a calling as a Christian servant leader all from a Biblical world view for kingdom service.
IS TEACHING A CALLING?
In the Teacher Education Department at Toccoa Falls College, we believe that the profession of education truly IS a calling. In our program, you are equipped to be servant leaders in today’s classrooms – serving students, parents, colleagues, administrators and the community. Our aim is to prepare prospective teachers to serve in private, public and overseas school classrooms.
One of our greatest resources in TFC’s Early Childhood Program is our highly qualified and dedicated faculty. We begin from our own spiritual roots and our own professional experience and expertise in teaching P-5 classrooms to assist prospective teachers in developing the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to be effective educators in the 21st century. The Christian worldview is integrated into each of the courses offered to prepare early childhood teachers to make a positive contribution to our changing society and world.
