• About Early Childhood Education

    Students will prepare for employment opportunities that involve

    working with young children. Although child care career preparation is the major emphasis, it is also a valuable course for students interested in elementary teaching.

    Students will gain experience through working in the on-site, state-licensed child care center and by job shadowing throughout the
    Kalamazoo area. Students have the opportunity to plan activities, apply basic principles of child guidance and gain supervised job experience.
