Chattahoochee Technical College offers a wide range of exceptional career education and adult education programs at our campuses in Georgia and our virtual classrooms, such as our popular Early Childhood Care and Education program. If you love working with children and look forward to guiding the next generation in achieving their full potential, our childcare program may be right for you.
One of the reasons why so many students have chosen our programs is because they offer superior flexibility. You can choose to pursue our Early Childhood Care and Education Basics certificate, which prepares you to enter the childcare field with a minimum of coursework. If you prefer a more intensive career training program, you could earn our Early Childhood Care and Education diploma, which prepares you to work from children from birth through age five. Or, choose our two-year program. As an Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Care and Education, you’ll graduate with an in-depth knowledge of early childhood development, care, and education.
Before you apply to our childcare program, take a few minutes to become familiar with the mission, philosophy, and goals of our Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) department. Our ECCE department is committed to providing a superior learning experience for prospective and current childcare workers and teachers, empowering them through demonstration, practice, and other concrete learning activities. Our philosophy emphasizes the critical importance of providing children with a supportive, nurturing environment to make a positive difference in families’ lives.
With a certificate, degree, or diploma from CTC, graduates are well qualified for a variety of positions in childcare centers, pre-k programs, after-school programs, and preschools. You might also choose to become a program administrator or start your own childcare center after completing our career training program.
