Early Childhood Education

Do you enjoy working with children?

ECEThe Early Childhood Education program is designed to educate childcare professionals in the skills and knowledge necessary for advanced positions in organizations and agencies that serve children.  Whether you select the associate degree or certificate option, you will participate in courses and field experiences in childcare that prepare you for entry-level positions.  Many students who complete the associate degree program take advantage of the opportunity to continue their education at a four-year institution.  The core courses of this program align with the educational requirements for the Child Development Assistant (CDA) credential.

Graduates of this program find employment opportunities in day care centers, summer and day camps, nursery schools, pre-school programs, recreational centers, and other agencies that serve children.
