Child Development is the study of the physical, socio-emotional, and cognitive growth and development of the child from conception through adolescence.  The purposes of this major are to provide a sound academic program in Child Development and prepare students to work with children and families in a variety of school and community settings.

Employment of preschool teachers is projected to grow 7% from 2014 to 2024.  Growth is expected due to a continued focus on the importance  of early childhood education.

Currently, Shelton State offers three certificate and degree programs in Child Development, as well as, an additional degree program through Management and Supervision.
