DATE On June 15, 2021

Looking for a rewarding profession? As an early childhood educator, you could be a positive influence in your students' lives and set children up for future successes. Teachers are needed now more than ever. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of preschool teachers is projected to grow by 13% in Illinois from 2018 to 2028.1 That's why we developed our brand new Early Childhood Education program.

In as little as 7 months, you could graduate and begin a meaningful career helping families in your community. You don't even have to leave your living room—this program is offered completely online!   In this program, students will learn about:

  1. Program models, various types of early childhood programs, community resources, the family's role in education, diversity, and contemporary trends and issues in programs for children ages birth through eight.
  2. The physical-motor, emotional, social, and cognitive growth processes from the prenatal period through adolescence.
  3. Nutrition for young children, including the relationship of nutrition to biological development; safety, health, and sanitary practices; and regulations and agencies.

Other courses in this program cover curriculum planning for young children, an introduction to psychology, and developing Microsoft Word and PowerPoint skills.

Whether you are seeking your first career or making a career switch, you are welcome as part of the Rockford Career College family. We will help you with everything from enrollment to practicing your interview skills. We also offer financial aid to those who qualify.
