Welcome to the Early Childhood Education (ECED) Program in the Department of Teacher Education, housed in the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies at Salisbury University. Our faculty and staff members are committed to preparing prospective teachers and we look forward to working with you.

Our work is guided by a conceptual framework centered on knowledge, skills and dispositions, critical for today’s educators to promote student success. You can find information about our Conceptual Framework’s specific themes and associated learning outcomes at
As a teacher candidate majoring in Early Childhood Education, you are expected to complete a rigorous program of study which meets state and national standards. This program is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and approved by the Maryland State Department of Education for elementary school teacher certification   (Pre-K-Grade 3). Candidates who successfully  complete our requirements graduate with a Bachelor of Science  degree from the Department of Teacher  Education in the Seidel  School of Education and  Professional Studies.   Although you  are expected to meet  regularly with your assigned faculty  advisor to discuss    your progress, you are responsible for  meeting all Early    Childhood Education requirements, as well as  the general    requirements outlined in the University Catalog.

Best wishes as you prepare to enter the teaching profession.

Director: Dr. Patricia Dean
