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.
For more information about our Early Childhood Care and Education program, contact Chattahoochee Technical College at 678-384-4958. Our childcare program is offered at our Canton, Paulding, and Marietta campuses, as well as online. We also invite prospective students to check our blog for helpful articles on succeeding as a student and overviews of our career training programs.

At Chattahoochee Technical College, we recognize that each of our students is an individual with different strengths. Some students may have excellent reading and writing skills that eclipse their math skills, and vice versa. Because a well-rounded general education is the basis for many of our programs of study, we offer Learning Support (LS) courses for students who might require extra help in certain areas. Though they are credit-bearing, these courses will not count toward your graduation requirements, nor will they affect your GPA.
The three LS courses are English 0090, Reading 0090, and Math 0090. Following a modular format, students in these courses are only required to complete work in areas where they have shown a need for improvement. Instruction is computer-aided and the focus is individualized, and the courses can be spread out over as many as three semesters or completed in one.
Call Chattahoochee Technical College at 678-384-4958 or visit ChattahoocheeTech.edu for more information about the complete suite of student services we offer, including learning support courses and career training.

Although many people in Georgia attend college immediately after completing high school, this is not the ideal path for everyone. Some may choose to serve their country by enlisting in the military and some may start families or careers. Eventually, after a few years or a few decades, some may decide to pursue a college degree, certificate, or diploma. Students who are beyond the traditional “college age” have several advantages when they return to school, including:
There are challenges that some 18 year olds may face when they begin college. For example, these younger students are likely living on their own for the first time with more freedom than they have ever experienced. Also, their social and dating lives can sometimes be a distraction from their academic pursuits. When you take college courses as an adult student, however, you already have a social and family life, so you can focus on your studies and career training.
Students who enter college directly from high school may have little real-world experience, beyond working an entry-level job after school or during their summer vacation. Adult students, however, bring a wider range of experiences with them into the classroom. These real life experiences, whether they are from military service, family life, or several years in a real job, provide you with the critical thinking skills and people skills you need to excel in your classes.
Younger students sometimes spend a few years of their college experience figuring out what career direction appeals to them. As an adult student, you are probably pursuing a specific course of study because you already know what you want to do. Whether you are working to advance in your current career or learning the skills for a completely new one, you have a clear goal set.
Chattahoochee Technical College is one of the best places in Georgia to begin your journey towards a college degree as an adult student. Call us today at 678-384-4958 for more information about our academics and career services.
