Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Education is now a part of the Social Science Division!

Please bear with us as we transition and update the ECE content. Check back for updates. Contact the Social Science Division if you have questions.

For students whose career goal is to teach children from birth to pre-kindergarten age in childcare centers and in-home settings, Lane Community College offers a two year, Early Childhood Education Associate of Applied Science Degree as well as a one year, ECE Certificate.

To enroll in the ECE certificate or degree program, please contact Jean Bishop, ECE faculty and program coordinator, at bishopj@lanecc.edu or (541) 463-5287

Extended educational opportunities include:

  • Class related to state-mandated training for individuals already working in the field;
  • Parenting skills classes;
  • General Interest Classes
  • Skill building outside of seeking a degree
