Master of Education Residency

M.Ed.  Residency

M.Ed. Residency at Champlain CollegeAs part of Champlain's M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education, students participate in a dynamic, four-day academic residency during their first year of enrollment in the graduate program. 

To fulfill the residency portion of the program, students will attend one of two National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) conferences. Students may choose from either NAEYC's Annual Conference, typically held in November, or NAEYC's Professional Learning Institute which is typically held in June.

I'm looking at everything with fresh eyes and dreaming of things I never imagined. I'm going to be dreaming bigger from now on.

The residency provides a space for rich, in-depth, face-to-face study of specific early education topics with your peers. With every conference, we hear from students who are blown away by the quality of the workshops and the excitement and inspiration they get from the event. The residency is a remarkable enhancement to your M.Ed. program, and you'll come away from it feeling energized and focused. 

This opportunity to meet your online classmates and faculty in person can positively transform the personal relationships you've built online. Additionally, you gain an opportunity to network with others outside of Champlain College who have similar professional interests and objectives.

Financial aid can be used toward the costs of the residency.

There were sessions that left me with my heart pounding for more. I am fired up about Early Childhood Education and I am looking forward to applying all that I have learned in the classroom on Monday.
