Welcome to the Child Development Department

Find your future through our classes, which train people as assistants, teachers, or directors in early childhood programs. 


Committed to the idea that quality care makes a positive difference in the lives of children and their families, our instructional program responds to the demand for quality child care staff. 


The curricula address Child Development Associate competencies, as well as criteria for quality early childhood programs developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).


Instruction is centered on lecture, lab and field experience classes, which offer direct participation in a variety of settings, including child care centers, preschools, nursery schools and early childhood special education programs.
