Early childhood educators have a significant impact on cognitive and literacy development in children from birth through age four. The Santa Fe College Early Childhood Education (ECE) program will prepare you to make a difference in the life of a child. If you are already working with young children, the program provides an opportunity to refresh your knowledge and learn new skills. If you are looking to start your career in early childhood education, the program will allow you to acquire practical experience as well as a basic pre-professional education. In addition to the degree programs in early childhood education, we also offer the Educator Preparation Institute, which prepares those with a bachelor’s degree to teach in the K-12 school system.
