Early Childhood Education
Students at any college can earn an award (degree or cert) in any of these programs. However, students may need to complete certain courses at other colleges within the District.
Early childhood is that unique and dynamic period from birth through age eight. Research shows that the quality of a child’s experiences in their first five years helps shape brain development. Early childhood education plays an essential role in supporting the healthy growth and development of children. If you’re interested in the well-being of young children, their families, and the community, the Early Childhood Education program might be for you. Our program will prepare you to work with children in a community setting outside of a traditional public-school classroom.
The Early Childhood Education program involves studying the complexities of social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. Our experienced faculty will teach you how to design, implement, and promote the best and most desirable experiences for children in early childhood centers and programs. You will also learn how to develop reciprocal relationships with families and research and advocate for access and equity. We will provide opportunities for you to learn skills, foster dispositions, and establish professional networks to launch or enhance your career.
