Early Childhood Education


Early Childhood Teachers work with children from birth through age five Far more than providers of mere ‘child care,’ Early Childhood educators help shape a child’s views of themselves and the world. They impact children’s success in school, work, and in their personal lives. In addition to helping children develop math and language skills, they introduce science, social studies and a myriad of other developmental concepts.

That’s why the Early Childhood Education program at CNCC is staffed by professionals who not only have impressive credentials, but extensive experience in the field. Our unique web-based approach to teaching Early Childhood basics is ideal for adults who are not only committed to learning, but to taking care of kids themselves.

Our Virtual Classroom technology allows flexibility in scheduling without losing the vitality of a live lecture and regular interaction with the instructor. When you enroll as a member of an Early Childhood “Cohort,” you’re part of a community that interacts with your classmates and with your instructor for the entire length of the program.

The program includes a substantial amount of clinical work with kids as well.
