Child Development

Making the world a better place

one child at a time

Child Development trains students to become caregivers and teachers of infant, preschool, school age, 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 we recommend you meet with a counselor and are encouraged to contact LMC's Counseling Department.
