"The proper time to influence the
character of a child is about a
hundred years before he is born."
Quality childcare is an urgent need in California and across the nation. Recent research has brought the importance of the early years in a child's development to the forefront of public awareness. The Mt. SAC Child Development Program offers an excellent foundation in the core competencies essential to a career working with infants, families, and young chidlren. The many certificate programs provide a basis for entry into the field or transfer to a four-year program. Make a difference in the life of a child by pursuing a career in this exciting and profoundly rewarding and important profession.
