Child Development & Family Studies

Welcome

The Grossmont College Child Development Program is designed to provide courses which lead toward an Associate Degree and/or Certificate in Child Development. The program offers the opportunity to learn about developmentally appropriate education and services for young children. It emphasizes curriculum planning for children from infancy through school age, guidance techniques, special needs of children and families, creative learning, health and safety education, administration of child development programs and current issues in the field.

The department philosophy is based upon these beliefs for children:

  • Children learn best through play.
  • Children learn best in an atmosphere designed to foster self-esteem.
  • Children thrive in an environment which integrates the physical, cognitive, social, emotional and creative aspects of development and values diversity.
  • Children's development is enhanced by partnership with school, home and community.

The courses are appropriate for early childhood teachers, aides, administrators, childcare professionals of all kinds, parents, nurses, or any person interacting with young children.
