Early Childhood Education curriculum updated

For its upcoming fall quarter, Grays Harbor College will be offering several new classes in Early Childhood Education. The ECE curriculum has been completely revised and updated and is available online.

The classes will focus on childcare basics, health, safety, nutrition, language and literacy, infants and toddlers, family child care, administration of early learning programs and an introduction to Early Childhood Education. Completion of required courses can lead to STARS certification for child care workers.

Once a certificate has been earned, students can move forward in many different ways, including looking for a job in an early learning setting or continuing on to complete an associate’s degree at Grays Harbor College with a focus on education, then transferring to earn a bachelors degree with teaching credentials. CityU is one of GHC’s four-year university partners and offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education on Grays Harbor.
