Early Childhood Education Transfer Track Non-Licensure (A55220N)
Associate in Applied Science
The Early Childhood Education curriculum prepares individuals to work with all children from infancy through middle childhood in diverse, inclusive learning environments.
Throughout the Early Childhood Education program, students will gain knowledge and understanding of foundational theories of child growth, development, and learning, observation and assessment, planning, domains of development, guidance, and ways to effectively communicate with parents, children, and other professionals in the field. Learning opportunities and course assignments provide students with a strong foundation in evidenced-based and current principles to work with children, families, and the community. Students will show competency in the program by integrating learned theories with practice in early childhood settings with young children under the supervision of qualified teachers.
Students in the transfer non-licensure track will have opportunities to transfer to a four year college and work in a variety of settings with young children and families.
