New Early Childhood Certificate Programs Launched

Two new certificate programs are now available through the Rio Salado College Early Childhood and Human Development department.

The Certificate of Completion for Infant Toddler Development covers topics such as child health, physical milestones, and cognitive development, in addition to relationship building between adults and children, language acquisition and communication.

The Certificate of Completion in Family Childcare Management provides a foundation in early childhood care theories. Students will learn about the cognitive and physical development of the young child, health and safety guidelines, curriculum development and business procedures specific to family child care providers.

Rio Salado’s Early Childhood Education Program serves undergraduate students and provides professional development for early childhood practitioners. The program’s incremental design allows early childhood professionals to move progressively through their education making the most of their credits and time.
