The 3-unit course will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Kern River Valley Plaza from 6 to 9:05 p.m. Students will examine a teacher's role in supporting development and fostering the joy of learning for all young children using observation and assessment strategies emphasizing the essential role of play. Content will include language and literacy, social and emotional learning, sensory learning, art and creativity, math and science. Students may be required to observe children in a group setting.
If you are interested in a career providing quality care and education for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, or school age youngsters in both full-day and part-day programs Cerro Coso has the class for you this spring. Cerro Coso Community College's Child Development Program of study promotes the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of children through positive interactions and developmentally appropriate activities.
Interested Cerro Coso students can earn an A.S. degree in Child Development or an Assistant Teacher Award, Associate Teacher Award, or Teacher Certificate for completing a defined course of study that requires fewer units than the A.S. degree. The California Child Development Permit Matrix requirements are reflected in the program allowing students to qualify for the permits required for teaching in programs governed by Title V and funded by contracts with the State of California. Permits are issued by the State Department of Education, California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (not Cerro Coso) and include: Assistant Teacher, Associate Teacher, Teacher, Master Teacher, and Site Supervisor.
