UCLA Extension Education Department partners with Riviera Playschool as the practicum site for a supervised field experience course. Riviera PlaySchool has the distinction of having been chosen as the very first ever practicum site for UCLA extension’s early childhood education certificate program. We are proud of having the honor! We will also continue our partnership with El Camino College Childhood Education Department that currently brings student teachers to Riviera PlaySchool to learn from our wonderful staff. Please let us know if you have any questions about the program or would like more information about the UCLA and/or El Camino Programs.
For over 80 years, the Education Department at UCLA Extension has provided staff development, in-service, and professional outreach to practitioners at all levels of education—from preschool through elementary, secondary, adult, and higher education. The Department also offers university professional development.
The programs in childhood education at El Camino prepare students for careers in private or public programs serving infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children with special needs , or children in before and after school care. The transfer degree option prepares students to continue studies at a four-year institution.
