Early Childhood and
Teacher Education Program

Students who want to make a difference by nurturing or teaching children and young adults will find excellent opportunities in Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s Early Childhood and Teacher Education Program. Small classes are taught by expert faculty to ensure that students receive quality instruction on the latest, cutting-edge teaching methodologies and childcare techniques. Many of our faculty are specialists in their fields with a variety of PreK-12 teaching experiences.

Through active, engaged and integrative learning, students gain foundational knowledge, which is applied in local childcare and PreK-12 classrooms each semester. Students network and collaborate with professionals in the field to gain essential hands-on experiences through service-learning in a wide variety of environments. Graduates of our program acquire real knowledge and experience in the classroom, effectively preparing them for the workforce and future careers.
