Re-entry & Resiliency Plan (updated 1/20/22)
You can make a difference for the next generation with a Carlow University master’s degree in Early Childhood Supervision. The program prepares early childhood leaders for positions in child care centers and elementary programs serving children from birth through sixth grade. Most principals are not prepared for Pre-K through kindergarten and early elementary leadership, which is this program’s focus.
Carlow will train you to become an effective, ethical agent of systemic change who can tackle implicit bias, racism and equity issues in the early childhood field, and connect you with like-minded educators.
As few as 18 months
On campus or online
Carlow’s program is designed for working adults using a hybrid eight-week course format delivered over three semesters. Course topics include professional development and supervision, planning and administering early childhood programs, and supervising programs in early childhood education.
Many school districts across the country report vacancies or a lack of qualified applicants for school leadership roles, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. With this degree, you will be prepared for careers in advanced leadership and administrative positions in early child care centers, schools, district offices and nonprofit groups, including early childhood administrator, K-2 principal, Pre-K Counts evaluator, early childhood curriculum director and early childhood mentor.
You can apply for free online, and must submit the following materials:
Fall, Spring & Summer
An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher is preferred; however, provisional admission is also possible if you do not meet all of the admission criteria but exhibit a strong possibility of academic success.
Pam Zimmerman (MEd ’03) liked the exposure to a variety of leadership pathways she received in the Early Childhood Supervision program. “The program not only gave me the background needed to be a leader in the field but also gave me the confidence to take on leadership roles in (local) agencies. I was invited to many leadership opportunities across the state and outside of my community where I connected with other early childhood leaders.”
