The Child Development Program at Point University

Pursuing a career in Child Development at Point University prepares students to explore the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of the child from conception and the prenatal period through age 8. Graduates accurately assess whether or not individual children are progressing appropriately in their growth, behavior, communication, and interactions with others. Students learn to practice the skills associated with being an educator of young children by engaging in preparation, implementation, management, and assessment as an intern in an appropriate environment.  The goal of the Child Development program at Point University is to describe and demonstrate appropriate responses while interacting with children and families who are from cultures that have different expectations and practices than the student’s. Upon completion, students are eligible to apply for an Early Education (Birth through PreK) Teacher Certificate from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). A bachelor’s degree in Child Development meets the minimum education requirement to be a Lead Teacher in a Georgia PreK classroom.
