The Child Development program is designed for students who are interested in working with young children. The program centers on continuing experiences in a wide variety of preschool settings and will also meet the needs of persons who are currently employed in pre-school centers, but who want to increase their professional skills. Students in the Child Development program strive to gain a deep understanding of the total development and potential of young children. The Child Development Program serves those entering and currently employed in the rapidly expanding field of Early Childhood Education. Students will be prepared to teach in pre-school programs, including private schools, children’s centers, Head Start programs, parent cooperatives and parochial schools, as well as serving as educational aides in elementary schools. The Child Development Program at West Los Angeles College prepares those individuals that are interested in opening their own Child Care facility. The program also benefits anyone interested in understanding children, their development, and their behavior.
