Early Childhood Education

Entry Level Program

The Early Childhood Education CAA is designed to provide individuals with introductory level preparation for occupations in childhood settings serving preschool children, infants/toddlers, and school-age children. Beginning in fall 2013, this two semester program provides you with foundational courses in Early Childhood Education (ECE) and culminates with a career certificate in Foundations in Early Childhood Education. Skyline’s Education program offers courses taught by experienced and knowledgeable faculty in the field of child development, early childhood, and special education. Students will gain experience through teaching at the Skyline Child Development Center and will also have the benefit of the cohort model/learning community to support their academic success. After the completion of the two semester Bridge courses, students can pursue a position in the early care and education field at the assistant level. They will also be more than halfway to the Associate Teacher level on the Teacher Permit of the California Department of Education.
