Child Development

People working with young children must have special skills: knowledge of child development and developmentally appropriate practice; boundless patience; good judgment, strength of character; and maturity to exercise the balance of control and latitude young children require. An Associate of Applied Sciences degree in child development enables students to own, manage, or teach at a child care facility in most states. The AAS curriculum is the foundation for various bachelor’s programs in Texas. It can also provide a unique set of skills for a variety of professions outside of child development.
