Early Childhood Education
Early Childhood Education prepares students for a variety of careers that are related to child care, a successful role in the family, or a college program in Early Childhood Education. Students will have an on site laboratory experience in our preschool. First year students will also have an off-site experience at a child care center. Laboratory and classroom experiences will focus on early childhood development, nutrition, parenting skills, personal growth and development, home management and budgeting, and job preparation. Students will prepare a personal portfolio of resources to be used both on the job and as an aid in further education. Students in this program need to be serious, responsible, and prepared to take additional academic education in science and communications in order to enter and be successful in this field.
