Prepare for a Career in Early Childhood Education

Early childhood educators have a significant impact on cognitive and literacy development in children from birth through age four. The Santa Fe College Early Childhood Education (ECE) program will prepare you to make a difference in the life of a child. If you are already working with young children, the program provides an opportunity to refresh your knowledge and learn new skills. If you are looking to start your career in early childhood education, the program will allow you to acquire practical experience as well as a basic pre-professional education.
