CCV’s education programs prepare you to teach at a variety of levels. The early childhood education degree program provides the knowledge and skills you’ll need to enter a rewarding, high-demand career in child care. The liberal studies degree is a solid foundation for the education you’ll need to become an elementary, middle, or high school teacher. Credentials and certificate programs can lead to employment as a home child care provider, after school program provider, or early childhood education administrator. Whatever path you choose, you’ll be well positioned for the workforce or further education.

CCV programs are stackable, meaning they build on one another as you progress toward your goals. Individual classes can be applied to credentials, credentials to certificates, and certificates to degrees. Check out our certificate to degree maps and explore the stackable program options available to you.
