5070 Early Childhood-Elementary Education: Transfer Associate

Graduates are prepared to transfer to 4-year colleges/universities for teaching certification in PreK-4th Grade. This program requires that all students obtain a current Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check (Act 34), Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151), FBI Clearance, and a valid TB Skin Test to be eligible for the required field experiences. A student should consider these factors before enrolling into this program. Additionally, students intending to transfer must have a 3.0 GPA in order to enter the professional-level course work, leading to teacher certification, at baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. Students are also required to attain a qualifying score on the Pre-Service Academic Program Assessment (PAPA) test before transferring. Since the requirements of 4-year colleges/universities varies widely, it is essential to choose an intended transfer institution as soon as possible and carefully follow the program described in that college’s catalog. The complete program is available at the Harrisburg and Lancaster, Lebanon, and York campuses. Some of the required courses are available at the Gettysburg Campus, as well as through Virtual Learning.

This transfer curriculum is provided as a guide for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution for teaching certification. Program-to-Program articulation agreements are in place with the State System of Higher Education Schools, which allows students to transfer 30-credits of education courses and 30-credits of general education courses.

In conjunction with National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Standards, this curriculum is designed to prepare students to:

  • Know and understand child development in order to promote healthy and challenging learning environments
  • Observe and assess children’s development and document their learning in order to develop appropriate curriculum and promote positive outcomes for each child
  • Use content knowledge to build meaningful curriculum
  • Use effective strategies to implement developmentally-appropriate teaching and learning
  • Know about, support and involve families and communities in their children’s development and learning
  • Uphold national standards for professionalism and ethics as well as participate in continuous professional growth
  • Use legal and ethical standards to locate professional literature in print and/or electronic format in order to make research-based decisions that inform teaching practices
  • Prepare and maintain an electronic portfolio that documents personal growth as well as scholastic and professional achievement through the course of the Early Care and Education certificate from entry point class to job search
