2 CHILD DEVELOPMENT & EARLY EDUCATION Lansing Community College offers an Associate in Applied Arts Degree and a Certificate of Achievement in Child Development and Early Education. Courses in the Child Development and Early Education program may also be used to meet the training requirements for those seeking to apply for the national credential independently awarded by the National Council for Professional Development the CDA. Each addresses the various components of high quality developmentally-based early education and care in a variety of settings and for all ages, including infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children. Instructional methods include lecturediscussion, hands-on experiences, and supervised fieldwork. Some courses are offered on-line. There are opportunities to transfer LCC Child Development and Early Education coursework to many bachelor degree programs. In addition, through an agreement with Ferris State University, teachers with a Michigan elementary teaching certificate may take all courses toward the ZS endorsement at LCC. Whenever you plan to transfer courses to another college ALWAYS be sure to check with an advisor at the college you plan to transfer to each college and program you may want to transfer to is likely to have different requirements. Associate in Applied Arts Degree The Associate In Applied Arts Degree in Child Development and Early Education (see Curriculum Code: 1637) prepares individuals to work in early childhood education and care programs as a lead teacher, teacher assistant, or program director. This program has been awarded Early Childhood Associate Degree Accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Four semesters of daytime field work in early education settings is required. The Associate in Applied Arts Degree fulfills the educational requirements for childcare center program directors as specified by the State of Michigan. The associate degree also meets federal regulations for Teacher Para- Professionals/Teacher Aide positions in public schools. Certificate of Achievement The Child Development and Early Education Certificate of Achievement (see Curriculum Code: 0133) prepares individuals for positions as personnel in early education and care settings. Courses for the certificate can be applied toward the associate degree. Four semesters of daytime field work courses in approved early education settings is required. Training for CDA Certificate The Training for CDA Certificate of Completion (see Curriculum Code: 0921) provides courses that meet the training requirements when applying for the CDA. The CDA Credential is independently awarded by the National Council for Professional Recognition to those demonstrating competence in their work with children in early education and care programs. LCC s CDA Training Program provides the required formal training. CDA Training courses can be applied toward the LCC Child Development and Early Education Certificate or Associate in Applied Arts Degree. Because there are requirements in addition to training for the CDA, including extensive experience working with young children, this certificate is designed for individuals already working in the field of early education and care. Seminars for Teachers, Early Childhood Educators and Others Child Development and Early Education Seminars supplement the core courses and provide professional development for early education and care. These credits may be used to meet Michigan child care licensing requirements and other continuing education requirements. A variety of times and formats meet the needs of early education and care workers, including weekends and online.

3 Early Learning Children s Community The Early Learning Children s Community (Early LCC) consists of full-day early education and care classrooms for children 6 weeks through 5 years. It is the academic fieldwork site for LCC students learning about children and families. Early LCC is located north of the Health & Human Services building on the downtown campus CHILD DEVELOPMENT AND EARLY EDUCATION ADVISING GUIDE The Child Development and Early Education program has a sequence of classes that must be taken in order. One course is the Prerequisite for the next. It is essential that the student begin this sequence at the start of course work; otherwise it may delay finishing the degree. Please consult the Curriculum Guides on the following pages and contact a Child Development and Early Education Advisor. Further information is available on the LCC CHDV website All CHDV courses must be completed with a 2.5 grade or better to be used as a Prerequisite. It will take at least 4 semesters (not including summer) to finish the required sequence. WRIT 121 should be taken early in the program since all courses will require writing. Building your skills early will help to be successful in all other courses. Minimum reading and writing assessment scores are required for entry into WRIT 121. LCC Supervised Required Field Work There are four classes that require LCC supervised fieldwork (CHDV 111, 220, 221, & 284). Each requires the student to work with children in a regulated early education and care setting and be supervised by CHDV faculty. Students will be placed at Early LCC or a community program selected by the CHDV program. If the student is currently employed as a regularly scheduled full-time caregiver in a licensed early education and care center, group or family day care home, the work-site may be approved for use as the placement site. Effective Fall 2014 all students must successfully complete at least one of the four field courses at Early LCC. Only daytime hours only during fall and spring semester are available for fieldwork. CHDV 111, 220, & 221 require that the student participate four (4) hours per week each week. There are specific children s age requirements and group sizes that apply to each individual course. CHDV 284 (student teaching practicum) requires the student to participate twelve (12) hours per week each week with the same group of children in the child care setting. This course requires an application for permission to register. See additional requirements on the Child Development and Early Education website Program Policies for Field Placement Participation Effective Fall 2015 Scholarships The statewide T.E.A.C.H.

7 Effective Fall Semester 2014 The Michigan Transfer Agreement is designed to facilitate transfer from one institution to another. One of the guiding principles of the agreement is to promote transparency among institutions and ensure accurate transfer information for students. The thirty credit hours of lower-level general education from the sending institution will be accepted as a block of 30 credit hours by the receiving institution. Students may complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement as part of an associate degree or as a stand-alone package. Completion of the Michigan Transfer Agreement does not necessarily mean that a student has completed the requirement for a specific Lansing Community College associate degree. At least one credit-bearing course must be earned in attendance at Lansing Community College. The credit-bearing course is not required to be from the areas represented in the MTA, but must be a college level class. When the coursework and residency requirements for meeting the Michigan Transfer Agreement have been completed, it is the student's responsibility to request that the statement "Michigan Transfer Agreement Satisfied" be posted on their LCC transcript by completing an MTA-CORE AUDIT request in the Academic Advising Center. The completed form will be submitted to and processed by the Registrar's Office. Effective Fall 2014, the following establishes the approved list of LCC courses under the six category requirements for the Michigan Transfer Agreement. Only courses in which at least a 2.0 is received may be applied to this agreement. A course that is transferred to LCC from another college or university and is not equivalent to a specific LCC course may be used to satisfy MTA if it is a general education course, fits into one of the MTA areas, and meets LCC's MTA Guidelines. To have such a course considered for MTA, a student must obtain documentation about the course from the school where it was completed, and submit the documentation to the Registrar's Office. View the LCC General Education Core Area/MTA Crosswalk to see a list of LCC Core courses that meet the MTA category requirements The basic two-year (30 semester credits) are: A.
