The need for trained Early Childhood professionals continues to grow due to the increasing numbers of families that must rely on qualified personnel to care for and teach their children. The Department of Labor cites child development as among the fastest growing occupations in the country. The Child Development Department strongly recommends that students transferring to four year institutions with the goal of becoming primary grade school teachers take as many child development courses as possible. All teachers need to have a strong foundation in child development.
