Curriculum Alignment Project (CAP)

CAP CAP CAP Members

The California Community Colleges Curriculum Alignment Project has engaged faculty from across the state to develop a lower-division program of study supporting early care and education teacher preparation. The Lower Division 8 represents evidence-based courses that are intended to become a foundational core for all early care and education professionals. Offering a consistent educational core throughout California’s Community College EC/CD Programs will better prepare students with the skills and abilities that best support the success of young children.
