Early Childhood Education


Program Description


The Early Childhood Education Program provides students an opportunity to explore early childhood education as a career field.  It prepares students to work with and educate children from birth through eight years of age.  Students will gain skills and knowledge in development, discipline, health, safety, communication, planning, preparing, and presenting activities.  The program also provides the students with practical work experience in our preschool and various programs in the community.  Upon successful completion of the program, students can earn articulation credits (free college credits) at Kellogg Community College and colleges and universities throughout Michigan. Students also have the opportunity to earn their Child Development Associate (CDA).  The CDA requires two years in the program with additional hours working with children from ages 3 to 5 years old.
