Oakton Community College will conduct three free informational sessions on early childhood education at both its campuses in November. The sessions will showcase the college's early childhood education degrees and certificates and offer information about Illinois credentials and transfer agreements.
Early childhood education employment is one of the fastest growing fields, and is expected to increase by 20 percent from 2012 to 2020, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook.
Sessions will be held at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in Room C140 at the Skokie campus, 7701 N. Lincoln Ave.; and 12:30 and 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, in Room 2140 of the Des Plaines campus, 1600 E. Golf Road.
