Early Childhood Education Pathway

 

HOW THE PROGRAM WILL WORK:

Prospective students who complete the interest form below will be contacted to discuss one of two pathways:

Pre-apprenticeship: Students will begin by taking an ESL for ECE class in the fall and a Student Success Seminar (Counseling 1) in the spring. 

Apprenticeship: Students will enroll in ECE classes in the fall and begin working in an apprenticeship with one of our ECE partners.

Cohorts will receive ongoing support and guidance with enrollment, financial aid, counseling, tutoring and other wraparound services. At this time, all the classes for this program will be offered at either the Soledad Adult School (Soledad Unified School District) or the new Soledad Education Center (Hartnell College).

Both cohorts will receive ongoing support and guidance with enrollment, financial aid, counseling, tutoring and other wraparound services.

At this time, all of the classes for this program will only be offered in Soledad, CA
