Chancellor's Statewide Syllabus with logo




 Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Early childhood education pilot shows promising early returns.

• 15 VCCS colleges currently have an early childhood program.
• In 2014-2015, 2,439 VCCS students enrolled in an early childhood program.
• The Virginia Quality Rating Improvement System rates quality early child development centers. For level two, teachers and directors must have some college credit, most likely from a community college. There are 227 centers in the Davenport Institute’s service region with only 28% of students in a quality rated center.
• TCC and NoVA are striving to become the first National Association for the Education of Young Children accredited community college programs.
• Early childhood education students can often earn a Career Studies Certificate for little or no out-of-pocket costs thanks to scholarships from the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation Pathfinders, the Virginia Department of Social Services, and other resources.

First generation college graduate finds herself a degree closer to opening her own childcare center.

Something old, something new,
that’s what our college round up brings to you.
Central Virginia is raising the bar
for Virginians who can pronounce nuclear.
And Mountain Empire is pickin’ some tunes
to ensure native music ain’t goin’ away soon.
