Front Range Community College

Early Childhood Education Program Mission Statement

At Front Range Community College (FRCC), the college-wide mission statement is that “We enrich lives through learning.”  In furtherance of  the college-wide mission and the nationwide focus on preparing professionals to enter the field of early childhood education, the Early Childhood Program at Front Range Community College seeks to provide “a strong student-focused, research and standards based education program that ultimately has a positive impact on children, families, and the community."   This mission guides our faculty in the teaching of developmentally appropriate practices, use of current research, and application of quality standards that reflect NAEYC competencies.

Self-Study Reflections:
  • The self-study reflected the growth of our program and its contribution to strengthening the quality of early childcare programs in our community.  It also validated the need to add additional full-time faculty across campuses to continue to meet community needs.
  • Since this process began, we have received greater acknowledgement from general education faculty and college administrators related to the value our program offers the college and community.
