The Early Childhood Education Career Advancement Academy provides students with introductory level preparation for occupations in educational settings serving preschool children, infants/toddlers, and school-age children.

This one semester program provides individuals with foundational courses in Early Childhood Education and culminates with a Career Certificate in Fundamentals in Early Childhood Education. After completing the program, students will be approximately halfway to the Associate Teacher level on the Teacher Permit of the California Department of Education and can pursue a position in the early care and education field at the Assistant level.
