Early Childhood Undergraduate Teacher Center & Classroom

Our Early Childhood Undergraduate Teacher Center and EC Classroom are located in Cook Hall. The primary purpose of this on-campus facility is to provide students with opportunities to apply what they are learning in ECHD coursework. The Center provides a setting and space for students to develop and prepare lessons and activities for off-campus student teaching experiences and courses.

The EC Undergraduate Teacher Center is equipped with a variety of developmentally appropriate resources, equipment, and materials. The Center is a comfortable and aesthetically appealing setting for adult students to learn, study, and to prepare coursework, and student teaching lesson plans. All resources are available for student use throughout their course of study. From curriculum planning resources, computers, printers, digital cameras, scanners, a laminator, an Accu-Cut machine, and a small kitchenette space – our Center provides all students need to be successful preservice teachers.
