The Early Childhood Program introduces students to working with young children (birth to age 8) and prepares them for employment in the field as well as successful participation in BA-level programs at other colleges. Courses prepare teacher candidates for CDA Credential as well as the Early Childhood Education endorsement offered by the Arizona Department of Education.


Awards will be made to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis until scholarship funds are exhausted.
