Early Childhood Education

Workforce (Evening) Program

Students who currently work in a DEEC licensed infant, toddler, or preschool program at least 35 hours per week for a minimum of 1 year, may be eligible to complete student teaching in their worksite.

Quinsigamond Community College has always been dedicated to the extension of education to people currently in their chosen field. The Early Childhood Department is no different offering flexible coursework and a variety of
programs to expand the knowledge base of the Educators currently working in the field of Early Childhood.

Students currently working at an EEC licensed center, family childcare, or under the public school system may be eligible to participate in the “Evening Capstone” classes. Students are required to follow the same course work as a traditional day student. While completing the Capstone coursework workforce students will complete the Student Supervised Participation requirement at their place of employment while also attending the QCC Children’s School
intermittently through both Fall and Spring semesters.

In addition workforce students will be observed at their place of employment by their field supervisor intermittently through both Fall and Spring semesters. All visits and observations are planned well in advance so that students, the field supervisor, and the administration of the EEC program (place of employment) have a set schedule.
