Child Development

ABOUT CHILD DEVELOPMENT

Education, Child Development, and Family Services is one of the fastest growing industry sectors in the nation. It is projected to increase by nearly 40 percent by 2016, and a large number of employees in this sector will be retiring. 

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, three of the ten fastest growing segments of this industry sector are child care services; individual, family, community, and vocational rehabilitation services; and community and residential elder care services. And through 2012 another career in this sector, teaching, will continue be one of California’s most vigorous areas of employment. 

This industry sector includes four interrelated pathways: Child Development, Consumer Services, Education, and Family and Human Services. Each pathway includes a sequence of at least two rigorous courses, beginning with a foundation class that leads to one or more concentration classes and concluding with at least one capstone course. Through successful completion of a career pathway, students gain skills that enable them to enter the workforce at a higher-than-entry-level step. These courses prepare students to succeed in any of the careers related to the sector pathways of Child Development, Consumer Services, Education  and Family and Human Services.
