The Child Development and Educational Studies Department at Fullerton College has a rich tradition of providing quality instruction and active professional participation in the fields of child development and education. Research driven pedagogy, the ever-changing demands of the profession, and the needs of our students direct the department’s curriculum and certificates. The program is designed to provide both transfer and career preparation opportunities for students pursuing careers in Child Development, Teacher Education, and Human Services.
