ABERDEEN, Wash. - If you like working with children, and are hoping for a job working with children in the Early Childhood Education field, Grays Harbor College says they may have the program for you.
Most of these jobs now require a Certificate in Early Childhood Education (ECE). The ECE curriculum has been completely revised and updated and is available online through Grays Harbor College.
For Fall Quarter, the GHC program offers several classes, focusing on child care basics, health, safety and nutrition, language and literacy, infants and toddlers, family child care, administration of Early Leaning programs and an introduction to Early Childhood Education. Completion of required courses can lead to STARS certification for child care workers.
Once a certificate has been earned, students can select from several other pathways: they could look for a job in an Early Learning setting, continue on to complete an Associate degree at GHC with a focus on education, and then transfer on to earn a bachelors degree with teaching credentials. City U is one of GHC’s four-year university partners and offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education right here on the Harbor.
For more information about Early Childhood Education, contact GHC’s Workforce Education department, 360.538.4011, www.ghc.edu/voc. Jay Fry is the CityU representative, on the GHC campus Tuesdays and Thursdays, 360.538.2524, jfry2129@CityU.edu .
