What You’ll Learn at LASC in Infant & Toddler Studies
With your Skills Certificate in Infant & Toddler Studies you’ll be equipped to care for children under 5. You may want to apply the skills you’ve learned to a career as a preschool teacher, serve as a nanny or continue your education to obtain a full teaching credential:
- Advance your knowledge of a child’s growth and development so you will understand where a child should be within their development so you know if a child is where they should be developmentally, or if a child needs extra assistance in moving to the next developmental step.
- Gain important insights on ways of observing and recording children at this age, and incorporate new techniques and strategies towards assisting them through different developmental processes and with any issues that may arise.
- Want a bachelor’s degree? LASC offers Child Development associate degrees so you can save money on your first two years of college learning from creative, dedicated faculty before transferring to a four-year college or university. We also have an Associate in Science in Early Childhood Education for Transfer degree where you can have guaranteed admission into a CSU and some UCs! Talk with your counselor to find out more.
