ECE Degrees and Certifications

The SFCC Early Childhood Education program offers several options:

Students in these courses are exposed to rigorous curriculum that includes many hours of actual work with children, as well as classroom discussion and theory. Most first quarter students can complete their field hours with children in the SFCC Early Learning Center, a Head Start and Early Head Start program providing day and evening care/education for children ages 6 weeks through school-age.

Students also are assigned to approved field site settings in private child care centers, special programs such as ECEAP and before/after school-age care, and public elementary schools to expose them to different program structures and teaching styles. This broad exposure to a variety of settings with children, under direct supervision of a master teacher, is one of the program’s strengths.
