About the Early Childhood Inclusive Teaching Field Endorsement Degree Program

On Campus Online

The Early Childhood Inclusive program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney is a premier undergraduate teaching program that will prepare students to work with children ages birth through 8 in a variety of early childhood settings. UNK helps students make a difference in the lives of children—ultimately making a difference in the world of today and tomorrow.

Early Childhood Inclusive students get to interact in classrooms early and often. UNK’s close partnership with Kearney and area schools provides numerous opportunities to interact in both early field experiences and student teaching. Faculty in the College of Education know the value of hands-on learning and guide students in these field experiences.
