Early Childhood Administration is taught using a cohort model, which means you will go through the program with the same group of 12-20 students. NLU graduates like the cohort model because of the support and friendships provided by their fellow students throughout the program. Students are required to attend three residencies lasting four days each at the beginning, middle, and end of the program.
