Early Childhood (A.A.S)
Research has shown one key to quality early childhood programs is professionally prepared early childhood providers. The Early Childhood Program at Highland Community College is designed to provide current hands-on techniques and academic readings that encourage a reflective approach to early childhood responsibilities. Students will learn principles of child growth and development, how to develop curriculum, how to create classroom environments that meet children's developmental needs, and how to work effectively with parents and families. Individuals planning to transfer credit for baccalaureate degree should check for particular requirements. Students will be involved in hands-on experience in conjunction with their college classroom experience.
