27 Semester Hours
The Early Childhood Development Certificate program prepares graduates for employment in educational programs for children from birth to age eight. Individuals will obtain a basic understanding of the developmental needs of young children and will learn how to create a nurturing environment in preschool and after school programs. All courses in the Early Childhood Development Certificate program can be applied toward the Associate Degree in Early Care and Education.
Job opportunities in this area are increasing because more children are attending pre-primary schools than ever before. Job opportunities are available in public and private nursery schools and child care.
The program is available during the day and evening.
The T.E.A.C.H. South Carolina scholarship may be available for students already employed in child care. Students who complete ECD 101, Introduction to Early Childhood may be eligible for the South Carolina Early Childhood Credential.
