CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Child Development

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0108  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This degree program prepares individuals to work in child care as a teacher, teacher assistant, or program director. The curriculum is aligned with the standards issued by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the Council for Professional Recognition (CDA). Students learn to plan and implement high quality, developmentally appropriate programs for all ages of children, infants through school-age, in both centers and family child care homes.  Graduates of the associate degree program meet the educational requirements for child care center program directors as specified by the State of Michigan Child Day Care Center Licensing Regulations.  The program involves several semesters of daytime field work in child care settings.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
