Early Childhood Education

SSF Adult Education has partnered with Skyline College to teach a 4 course Early Childhood Education training program beginning in October 2020.  Upon completion, students earn 12 credits and may apply for an Associate Teacher Permit.  The courses will be online during distance learning and then transition to the Adult Ed campus when we return to in-person instruction.  This training is an opportunity for anyone interested in pursuing coursework towards state licensing, an AA degree, or to earn professional development credit.  We also provide support with enrollment and financial aid applications. 


 If you would like to register or for more information, please contact Lani Xiao, Career Navigator at Adult Education. Lani can be reached via email at or by phone at (650) 827-8455, ext. 2732.
