Early Childhood Teacher Education



CIP Code 19.0708

Instructor: Ms. Brodish

Program Overview

The Early Childhood Teacher Education program prepares students to work with young children in a variety of settings that require an understanding of how children grow, learn, and develop. Students in the program interact with preschool children ages 3-5 in CAPCC’S Early Learning Programs located in Admiral Peary’s Business and Technology Center on campus. Along with studying how young children learn, students also practice teaching techniques that prepares them for any type of teaching career. Throughout the year, students assist in two early learning centers, the cafeteria, and help the early learning teachers plan lesson materials. Students also create bulletin boards and other learning devices. Students in the Early Childhood Teacher Education program have the opportunity to earn the Child Development Associate credential (CDA), which is the national industry certification. This credential can lead to employment or transfer as college credits. If you are interested in becoming a teacher or working with children in the future, the Early Childhood Teacher Education program can prepare you for that career!
