The Los Angeles Trade-Technical College Child Development Program is designed to meet the needs of those students who wish to prepare themselves for employment or who are currently employed in the Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education field. This curriculum prepares student to teach in programs for children including: private facilities, parent cooperative, Head Start programs, Children’s Centers and infant/toddler or school age programs. In addition, this program also prepares students to transfer to four-year universities in either Child Development or Teacher Education majors.
The Child Development Program offers various educational options. Completion of each program leads to a certificate, transfer option and/or an Associate in Arts degree. With additional general education units and required experience, the student will be eligible for the Child Development Permit as defined under Title 5. Meeting this requirement will enable the student to teach in both Federal and State preschool programs.
The Child Development courses provide training in infant and toddler care; working with school age children; supervising and administrating childcare programs, as well as working with special needs children. Students who complete this degree program will be proficient in the methodology of working with young children through the extensive overview of theories and application of child development, the development of curriculum and lesson planning techniques, ways to observe and record child behavior, and classroom management techniques.
Associate in Arts Degree
The Child Development courses required for the Associate in Arts degree provide training in infant and toddler care; working with school age children; supervising and administrating childcare programs, and working with special needs children.
The need for qualified personnel to work with young children has risen over 100 % over the last 10 years. Early childhood centers are requiring teaching staff to have AA and BA degrees in Child Development. Los Angles Universal Preschool is creating 5000 preschool spaces and so this requires highly qualified teaching staff with the college training in child development. [LAUP Feb 2006].
