WELCOME TO THE CHILDHOOD EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
The degree and the certificates in childhood education prepare students for careers in private or public programs serving infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children with special needs , or children in before and after school care. The transfer degree option prepares students to continue studies at a four-year institution. Students will acquire the ability to apply developmental theories in observing and assessing children in physical, cognitive, and psychosocial domains and will develop skills needed for working effectively with families, co-workers, and community agencies. Students will also gain the ability to design, implement, and evaluate developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive curriculum. Program assessment will be conducted regularly through examinations, presentations, student self-assessment, portfolios, and tracking student employment and promotion in the teaching field.
