Early Childhood Care and Education

The Early Childhood Care and Education program is designed to prepare students for employment in a variety of positions in childcare and related fields. Graduates are qualified as paraprofessionals, private pre-kindergarten teachers or Assistant PreK teachers, owners and/or directors of child care (day care) centers. The program emphasizes a combination of child development theory and practical application necessary for successful employment. The associate degree provides graduates with the opportunity for continued education and articulation to baccalaureate programs.
