Early Childhood Education
Early Childhood Education Certificate Program
The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program prepares you to work with preschool and school-aged children in both public and private school settings.
This one year certificate program prepares students to work with preschool age children as teachers or aides. Graduates are trained to work in a variety of educational and child care settings including nursery schools, preschools, as a nanny, and in child care homes and centers.
Course work and practical work experience emphasize knowledge of normal growth and development of young children, guidance skills, and the planning and directing of activities for children which foster positive intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Many of the courses are also excellent for parents or others who work with young children.
The student is required to complete a Criminal Records Check once and pay all fees required to complete the CRC process.
