If you are in search for a meaningful career guiding the educational development of young children, you’ve found the right place! Bellevue Colleges’ Early Learning Teacher Education Program will provide you with the knowledge, skill and education required to succeed in the field of Early Learning. Early Childhood education focuses on positive learning and developmental experiences for infants, toddlers, preschool and primary age children.
Students enrolling in the following courses, ECED& 120, ECED& 160 ECED& 191 and ECED& 192, will be required to have an account with CastleBranch which will collect all required materials such as background checks and immunization records. The cost of this account is $35.00 and will be paid directly to CastleBranch. Once the account is established there will be no further fee collection.
Below are some of our program benefits:
- Day, Evening, and Online classes offered to meet the needs for our part-time and full-time students
- Potential college funding through Financial Aid, Workforce Education, and the BC Foundation Scholarships. Please note due to new state requirements, currently-employed childcare workers might be eligible for free tuition and fee assistance through the Worker Retraining Program.
