Early Childhood Education Certificate

The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to create a positive learning environment for young children. Teachers who work in high quality programs for children understand how young children grow and learn and are able to provide materials and activities that are developmentally and interest appropriate.  The College must ensure that students enrolled in any ECE program demonstrate emotional stability to withstand the ever-changing circumstances and the ability to respond quickly and appropriately as events require. Students are also expected to have the maturity to accept direction and guidance, exercise sound judgment, maintain confidentiality and sensitive interpersonal relationships with teachers, fellow students, children and families.
