Early Childhood Education CAA Program
The Early Childhood Education CAA Program is designed to provide individuals with introductory level preparation for occupations in childhood settings serving preschool children, infants/toddlers, and school-age children. This two-semester program provides students with foundational courses in Early Childhood Education (ECE) and culminates with a career certificate in Foundations in Early Childhood Education.
Students will gain experience through teaching at the Skyline Child Development Center and will also have the benefit of a learning community to support their academic success. After the completion of the 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 through the requirements for the Associate Teacher level on the Teacher Permit of the California Department of Education.
