Trinity Valley Community College's department of Early Childhood Education offers both the Associate degree and certificate plans for students interested in continuing their education at a senior college or university or entering the workforce. The Associate of Arts in Teaching degree plan allows the flexibility for designing special curricula applicable to other bachelor's degree programs. The Certificate of Completions are directly related to competencies needed for employment and potential advancement in a career field centered around children's education and care. Students may initially enroll in a Certificate of Completion program and later transfer the courses into an Associate Degree program. 

According to the most recent U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment of preschool teachers is expected to grow by 25 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.
