Child Development



Making the world a better place one child at a time


picture of childChild Development trains students to become caregivers and teachers of infant, preschool, schoolage, and special needs children. A Child Development Major also allows a student the option of transferring to a 4-year college with a solid background in teaching children in preparation for an Elementary Education Teaching Credential, or a Child Development or Human Development Degree.


Los Medanos College offers a number of options if you are interested in working with children.  Before planning your career in Child Development, you are encouraged to contact LMC’s Counseling Department. 


If you are currently working with children 5 years and younger in Contra Costa County, please contact our First 5 Professional Development Program Coordinator/ECE Advisor, Melissa Jackson, at (925) 473-7637, mjackson@losmedanos.edu.
