Child Development is the study of the physical, cognitive and emotional development of children from conception through adolescence.
Occupational possibilities in the field of child development are endless. Options include working as an infant/toddler care provider, preschool teacher, program director, home daycare provider, TK/elementary/secondary teacher, counselor and social worker.
The department offers a variety of courses for students looking to transfer to a four-year university in child development or a related field, earn a certificate (meets California Licensing Requirements), an associate degree, or simply upgrade knowledge and skills.
