I have been teaching at Granite State for over 5 years and I marvel at the people who attend early childhood education classes. You do not have to be working in a day care center to take courses in Early Childhood. You might be a paraprofessional in a high school working with a special needs child. Maybe you work in a government office but are interested in children and are thinking of a career change. One student was a successful businessman who taught Sunday School and wanted to spend more time learning about children. Each person brings their own interests and experiences to the classroom. They offer each other support and ideas that are based on what they have done in the field, as parents, or in their hobbies and travels. If you are thinking of taking early childhood classes, or even starting an early childhood education degree at Granite State, but are worried that you do not have experience in the field, don't worry, you will learn from others and you will be amazed at all that you have to offer as well.
