Children are the future
Do you have a passion for teaching?
At CBC, we build our community of early childhood educators one quarter at a time. With stackable certificates and degrees, you’ll develop your knowledge and skills in the field of Early Childhood Education (ECE) in a meaningful progression.
ECE Program Highlights:
- Certificate programs combine theory and practical experience with emphasis placed on active student involvement.
- Coursework includes participation, observation and practical experience.
- Students may enroll in any of our programs at the beginning of any quarter on either a full or part-time basis.
- Most courses are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays to accommodate the varied schedules of working students.
In Washington state, the professional development system helps early learning professionals
choose a program that best fits their needs and get support to achieve academic goals.
If you are interested in educating our future leaders, then ECE at CBC is for you!
Note for students who are located outside of Washington state: Each state, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. protectorates vary in what professions
they require to be licensed and the educational requirements for those licenses. It’s
important to understand whether the degree or certificate you obtain from CBC will
meet the educational eligibility requirements for a license in the state in which
you plan to practice.

“My Early Childhood Education experience was educational and enjoyable. The teachers are encouraging, and their number one goal is to help you succeed. I learned the developmental stages of children and how to create an accepting and positive environment. We need to let children grow and use their imagination in a creative uplifting atmosphere. The most important aspect to remember is children learn from play and to not take that away from them.”
