Make your work all play in child development
Have you always had an interest in caring for young children? If you like helping children learn and grow, Child Development might be a great career path. You’ll take classes in everything from diversity and learning environments to theory and practice.
At LMC, you can earn a certificate or an associate degree in Child Development. With a certificate, you can jump right into a job at a daycare or preschool, or you can become a nanny. The associate degree gives you the base for further education and a career as a teaching assistant, paraprofessional or even operating your own daycare.
Why study child development at LMC?
Hands-on learning. A hands-on learning space isn’t just great for kids – it’s great for you, too. You’ll experience a wide variety of learning environments, teaching styles and age ranges in the Child Development program at LMC.
Standards-based Learning. LMC’s Child Development program is based on the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Standards for Early Childhood Professional Preparation Programs. You’ll learn what you need to know and apply your skills with confidence.
Peace of Mind. A Child Development certificate or degree shows parents that you have the knowledge to provide all aspects of developing young children. If you want to start or continue your career right away, the Child Development certificate is a great option.
Never stop learning. Once you earn your certificate, continue learning by earning an associate degree in Child Development. The associate degree will prepare you to work in a range of settings including preschool teacher or director, parent educator, childcare provider, infant and toddler specialist, and more.
