About the ECEC

The Early Childhood Education Center is part of the College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS) of the University of Michigan-Dearborn. It is a high quality early childhood program.  

The ECEC has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in the past and has submitted paperwork to renew our NAEYC accreditation.  The reaccreditation process can take place any time between April 2015 and November 2015.

The early childhood program applies a Reggio inspired constructivism theory of learning to early childhood education.  Our curriculum focus is nurturing children's critical thinking skills and problem solving skills.
