How is it different from Foothill?
It IS Foothill! You are a Foothill student with the added bonus of free tuition plus resources to help you succeed and connect with opportunities in early learning careers. All of the partners in this program, from the Boys and Girls Club to local school districts and other community groups work together.
Why was the program started?
We believe that early childhood education is extremely important for children and families, as well as our broader communities. There is a severe shortage of early care and learning providers in the Bay Area. Community Equity Collaborative is working to not only address this local need but also identify creative solutions that can be applied more broadly.
Will I get a certificate?
Yes, all students will receive a certificate of participation from Community Equity Collaborative at the Graduation Ceremony & Celebration that will be held on the last day of class. If you have questions about these certificates college or licensing and permitting requirements, please contact the Child Development Department Chair at Foothill College, Nicole Kerbey.
