Who takes the course and why?
Child Development majors must complete this course with at least a C in order to earn a Certificate of Achievement, Associates Degree or Associate in Science in Early Childhood Education for Transfer Degree. This is your required lab course and supervised fieldwork providing the opportunity to apply the ideas you have learned in your Child Development courses working directly with children each week under faculty supervision.

What are the prerequisites for the course?
There are five courses you must complete with at least a C in order to be prepared to enroll: CD 106 (Child Growth & Development), CD 110 (Principles and Practices in ECE), CD 111 (ECE Curriculum), CD 114 (Observation and Assessment) and CD 208 (Child Family and Community. This is not negotiable. If you took these courses at another college you must complete a course substitution form with a counselor to transfer that course to your Rio Hondo transcripts in order to enroll. This takes time so complete this class before enrollment begins. CD Permit requirements do not apply to college course enrollment requirements.

Where will I work with children?
Students will complete the lab hours at the Pre-School Laboratory located at the Child Development Center on campus. Working students may not use their place of employment as the lab site. This is not negotiable. This is a state required fieldwork course not a work experience course.

What are the hour requirements?
Students select a consistent one day per week and a consecutive total of three hours and 10 minutes to work with the children for the entire semester. Only day hours Monday through Friday are available. Students must be able to begin their hours by of before 10am or at 1:50 pm in the afternoon. This is not negotiable. The children nap between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m.

Are there other requirements before the semester begins?

  1. Enrolled and formally Wait Listed students receive an email to their Rio Hondo account before the semester begins with information regarding presemester preparation. The instructor will ask you to respond with three preferences of days and times. Answer that email right away. All assignments are made on a first come first serve basis and begin during the first week of the semester even if the class has not met yet.
  2. All students must provide documentation of a TB test within the last year.
    3. All students will be required to provide a copy of transcripts to confirm the grade in prerequisite courses.

IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COURSE, PLEASE DO NOT ENROLL OR DROP YOUR NAME FROM BOTH THE ENROLLED AND WAIT LISTS, THIS WILL ALLOW OTHER STUDENTS WHO QUALIFY TO ENROLL.
