About The Program

The program prepares students for employment as early childhood development professionals and supplements the education of individuals already employed in the field. It also provides seamless articulation for those who wish to continue their education at a four-year institution. The Early Childhood curriculum covers a complete spectrum of issues in child development and education. Additionally, the curriculum is common across the state by peer group agreement, and it covers the areas recommended for NAEYC Associate Degree programs in Early Childhood Education.

Graduates may serve as lead teachers, directors, owners/operators, instructional assistants and curriculum specialists in childcare and preschool settings.
