Welcome to SCC’s Early Childhood Education program. The program prepares students to provide care and education for infants, preschoolers and primary-school aged children. Students study all aspects of children’s development, learn the skills, techniques and methods to enhance each area of development and then practice this theory while observing and working with children in a variety of developmentally appropriate practicum sites. The program offers students two certificate focuses, one diploma focus, one Associate of Applied Science degree and one Associate of Applied Science degree with an Entrepreneurship focus. The program is designed to give students unequalled learning opportunities that will form the basis of rewarding and meaningful careers as they work with young children and families.
Southeast Community College is a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement Institution.
The mission of the Early Childhood Education program is to prepare students to work with children and families in diverse and inclusive early care and education settings. Furthermore, the program teaches adults to create and teach in learning environments where children grow into self-confident, socially adept individuals who can succeed in today’s rapidly changing society. Students are taught in classroom and lab settings that are exploratory and experiential in nature, much in the same way they are encouraged to teach young children. Inclusionary practices and understanding the important role of the family are the cornerstones of the program.
