SVCC Offering Early Childhood Education Certificate

Do you enjoy working with children?  Come take courses in the Early Childhood Career Studies Certificate at Southside Virginia Community College this fall!  Registration is now open.

Program coursework includes College Success Skills; Introduction to Early Childhood Education; Guiding the Behavior of Children; Health, Safety and Nutrition Education; Creative Activities for Children; and Coordinated Internship.  All classes will be available online, plus two will meet on alternating Tuesdays from 5-8pm this fall.  Guiding the Behavior of Children begins August 20, while Health, Safety, and Nutrition Education starts August 27.  Dean Dixie Dalton states, “We’re excited that students can earn six credits (of the sixteen required) by attending class one night per week utilizing a course model that combines seated and online work.”

The program prepares students to work with children in safe and healthy environments that are supportive of their individual development.  Career options include daycares, pre-schools and Head Start programs.

For more information, contact Dr. Dixie Dalton at dixie.dalton@southside.edu.
