Early Childhood: A.A.S.

The Early Childhood program leads to an Associate in Applied Science degree and is designed to prepare graduates for immediate employment or to enhance the skills and advancement opportunities of those already employed.

Some Early Childhood Education courses may meet requirements for the Child Development Associate (CDA) credentials. ECE 110 - Introduction to Early Education (3 credits), ECE 190 – Infants, Toddlers, and Families (3 credits), and ECE 120 - Curriculum Development (3 credits) are recommended.

A certificate in Early Childhood may be awarded with successful completion of the first two semesters of coursework.

Teacher Certification transfer students should enroll as Liberal Arts: General Studies - Education (LAGS EDU) students for an A.S.degree.

Some Early Childhood Education courses may transfer for those seeking early childhood teacher certification. Verify with transfer institution.
