Child Care & Development

(Early Childhood Education)



The child care development program at Cowley College consists of an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Child Care & Development (Early Childhood Education) and a Child Care Certificate.


The AAS degree is recommended for those who prefer to work with children from birth through age eight in a child care and development setting, such as in-home child care or a child care facility. The AAS degree is also recommended for those who are seeking an upper level position within child care such as director of a center.


The Child Care Certificate offers advanced course work for those seeking employment within a child care center or as a licensed in-home child care provider.

Note: For students interested in earning a teacher license in early childhood education and work for a public school system, the Associate of Arts in Elementary/Early Childhood is recommended and can be found under the Education category.
