Early Childhood Education
The Child Development pathway is designed to prepare students to pursue a career in the field of childcare and development for infants, toddlers, and young children. Students study child growth and development, safety and emergency procedures, nutrition and health practices, positive interaction, and guidance techniques, learning theories, and developmentally appropriate practices and curriculum activities.
Students apply this knowledge in a variety of early childhood programs, such as child development laboratories, public and private preschools, family day care settings, and recreational facilities. Students completing the program may apply for the Child Development Assistant Permit from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
