Unified Early Childhood ProTeach (Teacher Certification Program)

The Unified Early Childhood ProTeach program is an interdisciplinary teacher education program designed to prepare teachers to teach all children from the earliest ages to grade 3 (including those with disabilities and from diverse backgrounds). The program results in eligibility for the Preschool (birth to 4 years) Certificate, Prekindergarten/Primary (age 3 to grade 3) Certificate, the ESOL Endorsement and the Prekindergarten Disability Endorsement.

Completion of the program includes a fifth year of study and culminates in a master’s degree for those students accepted into the UF Graduate School. Otherwise, this becomes a year of post baccalaureate study. Admission to the junior year does not guarantee admission to the graduate program.

Undergraduate admission requirements information can be found at our Student Services website.

Questions about the Unified Early Childhood ProTeach program should be addressed to Hazel Jones, Ph.D., Associate Professor.
