Department of Early, Elementary & Reading Education

The Department of Early, Elementary, and Reading Education offers graduate and undergraduate programs in literacy, early, and elementary education that are approved by the Virginia Department of Education and accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.  All programs have an extensive fieldwork component that assures students varied opportunities for experiences working with children and families. The department also operates the Young Children's Program, a laboratory preschool for three and four year olds. The Reading Center, a collection of current children's literature, supports all professional education licensure programs.  Programs and faculty are housed in Memorial Hall.
