We provide quality learning through a variety of delivery modes to reach all students. Our courses are offered worldwide online and many courses are offered in a blended format to reach the diverse needs of today’s students.

Our students have direct experience observing and working with children in National Association for the Education of Young Children-accredited centers, Department of Defense child development centers or university/college lab schools including our own CTC Child Development Center/Lab School. The center/lab school provides quality care and education designed to meet the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children ages six months to five years old. It provides local college students with a quality example and lab experience and also serves as a model for the community. CTC Child Development program goals include assisting students with making intelligent career choices, keeping them abreast of the latest trends and techniques in the profession and assisting child development professionals with resources.
