Early Childhood Education
The Early Childhood Education degree is designed to provide students with the knowledge and instruction that will promote their understanding of the child’s development from birth through age eight. Classes will prepare students to understand and successfully interact with children, and to enter a variety of professions serving children and their families. Many of the instructors in this program currently manage their own schools, therefore providing practical information and experience as well as teaching an excellent theoretical basis. Experience in the field is required through coursework to provide a solid and thorough educational experience.
The ECE program offers coursework required by the State of California Department of Social Services and for licensing by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the Child Development Permit. See box to the right for the specific coursework and requirements.
