Get Ready Before You Start
Interested in a career in child development? Before your first class starts at LASC, you can start preparing for your early childhood education career:
Make an appointment with your LASC academic counselor to review LASC’s program, develop a Student Education Plan (SEP), and discuss your career goals to see if transferring to a four-year college or university may be beneficial for what you want to do in the future.
Still in high school? Contact local childcare and daycare centers, elementary schools, and preschools to see if you could observe for an afternoon to watch child development educators in action. Contact local social welfare offices to see if they have any summer internships or volunteer experiences. Talk with your high school counselor to see if they can recommend any local opportunities that you could be a part of.
