"Our Children will learn more because you learned more”

Navajo Technical University is dedicated to prepare Early Childhood Professionals in a culturally and linguistically diverse environment at a baccalaureate level. Students work intensely and progressively to prepare for their State Early Childhood Teacher Licensure from Birth to 8 years old.

This program provides a unique opportunity to assist present or future teachers of young children to use child development knowledge within the childcare, preschool and primary schools. This includes practical field experience, which will enhance their professional practice and gain competence in working with Infants through 8 years old and their families.

Students complete 16 full weeks of Student Teaching at an approved site during their final semester. We look forward to you to join us to bring about change in the community in order to improve the lives and education of our children.

Students are required the following:

  • Federal, State, and Navajo Nation Fingerprinting and background check
  • CPR/First Aid and Food Handling Training
