Interested in a career in education or operating your own daycare center? The Early Childhood Education program is for you!
In this new course, students learn the fundamentals of how children develop as they prepare for entry-level employment or further educational training.
Students learn the basics and methodology of child development and early childhood education while gaining a solid foundation in classroom arrangement, classroom management and curriculum development for infants/toddlers/preschoolers and young children. Students will also learn how to communicate and work with parents/guardians and staff in an education setting.
Through on-site work-based learning in a daycare center, students also gain formal childcare hours required to apply for Child Development Associate (CDA) certification.
