Sample Schedule

This is a full-time program, designed to be completed within six quarters, beginning in the fall.  Students enter as a cohort, attending classes twice a week in the evening and meeting one or two Saturdays a month.  Online work is also required.  It is expected that students are employed in an early learning setting during their two years of study in order to practice the skills taught in the program.  Students who are not employed will be placed in a practicum site approved by the Education Department at Green River.
