Change lives. Connect, reflect, and create! Share, inspire, and have fun!

Teaching children or youth provides opportunities to change the lives of children and families for the better, and to evolve as a human being.

CCSF's Child Development and Family Studies Department supports students who want to care for infants or teach in preschool, engage in after-school and youth work, teach in TK-12 or college classrooms, and centers a commitment to social justice, a broad understanding of children's development and the importance of responsive relationships. We offer career advising, academic counseling and a friendly face to help you as you begin or continue your journey to becoming an educator!
