Child Development Education (271)
Associate in Applied Science Degree
The Child Development Education program is designed to prepare students for careers as a group supervisor or aide in day care settings, a head teacher in pre-school, and a paraprofessional or teacher assistant in public schools. The program provides students with courses in the development of young children and a fourth semester field experience.
NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled for the fall; second/fourth semester courses will be scheduled for the spring. The student is encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed. In some cases, one or more courses may be taken in a different order than indicated on the planner. However, individual course prerequisites must be observed.
Prerequisites/Corequisites – Some courses require another course be taken beforehand or at the same time. To check if a course has a prerequisite or corequisite, see the course description.
