About the Program


The mission of the Early Childhood Education Department is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to work effectively and professionally with young children, their families, and their communities. The Departmentís goals are to educate students in the following areas: child development and education, family and community relationships, interagency cooperation and referrals, cross-cultural awareness, curriculum development and implementation, child assessment, and professional behavior. The GBC Early Childhood Program combines practicum experience with coursework so students can practice learned skills, obtain reflective feedback, and grow professionally.

Successful completion of the Early Childhood Education degree is designed to qualify students for such employment opportunities as assistants, teachers, and directors in child care centers, preschools, and as home day care providers.
