Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education Program is a two year course for students who are interested in working with young children. The program focuses on child development and theory, psychology, child guidance, professionalism, curriculum planning, CPR/First Aid, and college and career planning.

Early Childhood Education students work to earn the State of Maine Early Childhood Assistant Certification as well as 6-9 college credits through our dual enrollment agreement with Kennebec Valley Community College.  Students train in early childhood programs throughout our local schools, job shadow at the hospital and with various therapy and/or counseling programs.
