Santa Fe College offers an Associate in Science degree in Early Childhood Education that prepares students to work as teachers of young children from birth through age four.

Early Childhood Education graduates are employed in child development centers, Head Start, Early Start and pre-kindergarten programs, childcare centers and programs serving children with disabling conditions.

The Santa Fe College Little School, a parent-child developmental laboratory center serving toddlers and preschool children, is a unique, well-equipped facility that provides opportunities for supervised observational field experience.

The Early Childhood Program is designed to serve a variety of students. For those already working with young children, it provides an opportunity to refresh and increase knowledge and competencies. Others who wish to explore and/or gain entry into the expanding child care and early education field can acquire practical experience as well as a basic pre-professional education. Parents can build knowledge and skills through parenting classes offered as part of this program.

A standard high school diploma/GED is required before admission to Education Programs.
