In September Drs. Paige M. Bray and Lynn Johnson, both early childhood faculty at UHart, will join their multi-year cohort at the Council for Exceptional Children/Division of Early Childhood annual gathering to further the work of integrated and inclusive early childhood programs, birth to age 8.

UHart early childhood programs, including Montessori, are the first four-year/bachelor’s degree programs to be aligned with the new EI/ECSE personnel preparation standards.  Learn more about these here:

UHart provides pathways for working with children and families from birth to grade 3 and is especially proud of our ongoing partnership with CT Birth  to Three early intervention programs serving children and families. 

There are extensive resources through the funding partner UConn Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities  ECPC site

The enduring pedagogical partnership between UHart and MTCNE informed Dr. Bray’s co-authoring Chapter 54. Interdependent Impact: Contemporary Teacher Education and Montessori Teacher Preparation, Gay C. Ward (University of Wisconsin River Falls, USA) and Paige M. Bray (University of Hartford, USA).
