According to the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Scholarship Program, research makes it clear that early experiences are critical for successful brain development, and making sure these quality early experiences are possible is far more effective than trying to address problems at a later age. It takes a qualified, educated, stable, and effective early childhood educator to provide the types of experiences that are needed to build trust and promote learning and readiness for kindergarten.

Lake-Sumter State College’s child development programs prepare motivated and caring individuals to support early childhood education.

Scholarships for these programs are available from the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Scholarship Program.
