The elementary/early childhood education program at Maryville prepares students to be certified in both early childhood (Birth-grade 3) and elementary education (Grades 1-6). Classes, field experiences, an early childhood area of concentration and a general education contribute to a broad-based elementary and early childhood teacher preparation program.
Maryville’s School of Education has been recognized for its work at the elementary and early childhood level by the Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, various local school districts and as part of John Goodlad’s National Network for Educational Renewal.
