Hi, I'm a freshman in high school who plans on becoming a preschool teacher after college. What colleges have strong early childhood education major programs, preferably ones with strong internship placement rates? I'm not sure if there's any other major that could get me a job as a preschool teacher (in a public school or daycare center) other than early childhood education, but if you know any, please let me know!
P.S. I'm looking at UNC Chapel Hill, but what are your thoughts on their program for early childhood?
The college that will be the best fit for you will depend on your unique applicant profile. For your general research, I would recommend using CollegeVine's list of all the colleges with an early childhood education major in the US.
Since early childhood education programs are offered at the graduate level, you could major in education in undergrad to widen your college search. This is what you would have to do for UNC Chapel Hill, since it appears that their early childhood education tracks are graduate programs. These programs will definitely help you achieve your goals since UNC Chapel Hill's School of Education is highly ranked. Hope this helps!
