Early Childhood Education Pathway

How the program will work:

Prospective students who complete the interest form below will be asked to attend an Orientation.

Students will begin by taking a Student Success Seminar Class (Counseling 1) at Hartnell College for the Spring 2022 Semester (Jan. to May.). This will be followed by enrollment in ECE classes at Hartnell College beginning in Fall-August 2022.

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 be offered at the new Hartnell College – Soledad Education Center.
