CHILD DEVELOPMENT

Health, Nutrition, Safety and Food Sanitation of Early Childhood Programs

The Child Development Program serves those entering and currently employed in the rapidly expanding field of Early Childhood Education. Students will be prepared to teach in pre- school programs, including private schools, children’s centers, Head Start programs, parent cooperatives and parochial schools, as well as serving as educational aides in elementary schools. The Child Development Program at West Los Angeles College prepares those individuals that are interested in opening their own Child Care facility. The program also benefits anyone interested in understanding children, their development, and their behavior.
