Child Development Information
The Child Development program is a theory-based, hands-on program that offers opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of children and families and the unique teaching and learning process that applies to the early years. Coursework focuses on the physical, cognitive, and social and emotional growth and development of children under the age of 12 and the unique care and education needs of children ages 0-5.
The program offers options for professional development, professional certification and transfer to four-year institutions. All options are designed to educate and prepare students to work with culturally diverse groups of children in schools, centers, and homes. Courses are offered during the day, in the evening, on weekends and online.
