INFANT AND TODDLER TEACHER EDUCATION EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND ADMINISTRATION Coursework in the Early Childhood Education Department emphasizes the theoretical and practical knowledge needed for working with culturally diverse children birth through age eight. The department offers a variety of certificates and degrees depending on age groups and needs of children. The various certificate and degree programs provide developmentally-based courses designed to teach students how to provide competent care and interactions for children. EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE FOR TRANSFER (AS-T) Students graduating with an Associate in Science in Early Childhood Education for Transfer Degree are well positioned to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in a similar major within the California State University system with 60 units of upper-division coursework. Students who complete the Early Childhood Education AS-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students must maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum 2.0 is required for CSU admission, some majors may require a higher GPA. Please consult a counselor for more information. The Mission of this program is to grant students an AS-T degree in Early Childhood Education with 24 units in the major and prepares students to transfer to a CSU. This degree gives students priority admission to a local CSU campus, in a similar major, with junior status. Students are encouraged to also complete additional units to earn an ECE Certificate of Achievement. CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT A certificate is earned by students who have developed skills necessary to work as teachers of infants and toddlers in early childhood settings. Courses emphasize strong theoretical and practical skills needed to work with children birth to 2 years. Courses fulfill Title 22 licensing requirements and Title 5 early childhood education course requirements for the Child Development Permit at the teacher level. Students are required to obtain a grade of “C” or better in all required courses. Program Outcome 1. The objective of the program is to meet the needs of the local child care programs by preparing students for entry-level employment as a professional and competent infant/toddler teacher.
