About this Project

The California Community Colleges Curriculum Alignment Project (CAP) engaged faculty from across the state to develop a 24 unit lower-division program of study supporting early care and education teacher preparation. Eight courses represent evidence-based courses that are intended to become a foundational core for all early care and education professionals. It is our hope to gather contributing authors for concepts in each of these courses.

The eight courses include the following:

  • Child Growth and Development

  • Health, Safety and Nutrition

  • Child, Family, Community

  • Observation and Assessment

  • Introduction to Curriculum

  • Teaching in a Diverse Society

  • Practicum

  • Introduction to Curriculum
