Preparing infant-toddler professionals: A community college’s perspective


This paper outlines the steps that one community college preservice teacher education program is taking to reclaim the profession of infant-toddler education. The Teacher Education Department at the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) is a unique program, as it provides students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Associate’s Degree Program the opportunity to specialize in working with infants and toddlers. It is the only undergraduate teacher education program in the New York City metropolitan area that offers a specialization in infant-toddler curriculum and development. (author abstract)
