If you like working with young children and would like to shape the future by helping them develop necessary skills to take them through elementary school and beyond, Craven Community College’s Early Childhood Education program may provide the foundation you need to get started.

After completing the basics in early childhood foundations (leading to the North Carolina Early Childhood Credential provided by the Division of Child Development) students study child growth and development; physical/nutritional needs of children; care and guidance of children; and communication skills with parents and children.

The program combines learning theories with practice in actual settings with young children under the supervision of qualified teachers.  Students will foster the cognitive/language, physical/motor, and social/emotional and creative development of young children.

Associate degree graduates are prepared to plan and implement developmentally appropriate programs in early childhood settings.  The program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

Currently, the program is offered in a Saturday-morning cohort to support individuals working in local child care agencies.
