Early Childhood Education Programs

The Early Childhood Education curriculum (formally known as Teacher Aide/Child Development) is designed to provide students with the requisite skills and theoretical knowledge to work in a variety of facilities for young children. The curriculum includes the cognitive areas of theory, history of child development, psychology and sociology as they relate to the developing infant.

This program has been articulated with some area high schools. Recent high school graduates may have earned credit in this program through high school coursework.

NOTE: All students who intend to be an elementary or secondary school teacher must plan their programs at South Suburban College very carefully in order to ensure that:

  1. they transfer without loss of credit to the senior institution of their choice.
  2. they fulfill the new General Education requirements for teacher certification by the State of Illinois.
