Early Development and Education provides skills and knowledge for entry-level employment in occupations in the field of early childhood. This includes jobs in child care centers, Head Start programs, pre-school programs, private kindergartens and teacher assistants in public schools. Upon Entry into the program, students may be required to have a TB Test; be certified in First Aid and CPR; have a food handlers certificate, or be fingerprinted. Students must not have a criminal record. The Early Development and Education Program offers two Level 1 Certificates and an Associate of Applied Science Degree. All workforce education students are required to pass a Capstone exam to graduate. The Capstone exam is administered the semester that student applies for graduation or CDEC 1164. A minimum grade of 70 must be obtained in each of the CDEC/TECA classes. Students not meeting program requirements or students who might be a threat to children will be exited from program.
