"As early childhood programs and schools become more diverse, there is a growing demand for culturally and linguistically responsive professionals who can inspire and engage young learners and their parents," said
Dr. David P. Lopez, president of NHU. "We are proud to partner with
Canada College to extend the educational opportunities offered to their students and help them advance their careers and address the needs in today's multicultural classrooms."
"We're proud to welcome The
National Hispanic University as our newest University Center partner," said
Canada College President
Lawrence Buckley. "Early childhood education is among the largest academic programs on our campus. Approximately 500 students were registered for early childhood education classes at
Canada this past spring. Many of those students are juggling academics with families and jobs. Offering the convenience of earning a bachelor's degree without leaving the
Canada campus provides them a wonderful opportunity."
The partnership will allow students from
Canada College who are near graduation or have completed their Associate in Science in Early Childhood Education the opportunity to enroll in NHU's B.A. in Child Development program and complete their bachelor's degree on
Canada's campus. Students can choose from a variety of concentrations, including
Early Biliteracy Development,
School-Age and a
Dual Concentration in Early Intervention and Early Biliteracy Development, which are designed to prepare today's early childhood education professionals for emerging opportunities in the field.
The B.A. in Child Development program reflects the competencies and guidelines established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). It is also structured to meet the State of California Child Development Permit Matrix requirements for employment in preschools, child development centers and after-school sites.
