ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Pre-school education is known as the magical years. It is the period during which the child’s development is the fastest and most critical. The aim of pre-school education is to ensure child development reaches its full potential under its own terms. The Child Development Program is a four year 8 term undergraduate program. Students of the Child Development Program graduate such that they can prepare programs suitable for development levels, plan lay-outs, monitor child development in various areas, work in collaboration with families, individuals and organizations within the child development industry, and raise public awareness on the subject of child development.
