Our department prepares students to work in the field of early child development and childcare. If you want to become an elementary school teacher in public or private schools, see the Associate of Arts in Teaching degrees in the Education Instruction Department

Who are our students? 

ACC is for everyone and so is the Child Care and Development program — there is no “typical student” here. We provide an inclusive, supportive environment that welcomes diversity in culture and learning styles. Every student starts with different academic experience and skills but works toward the same goal: to become a competent professional who uses their skills and knowledge to help young children develop and thrive.
