Welcome to the Child Development and Education Orientation!

If you do not attend a face-to-face orientation, you will need to explore this website.  Your online orientation consists of clicking on all of the links and reading all of the material that is on this website.  Online orientations require you to complete a Child Development and/or Education lab quiz.  Check with your professor as to how they want you to complete and turn in the quiz.

Whether you are new to the Child Development and Education Program or a returning student, we welcome you and want you to know that we are here to help you to make your classroom and lab experiences a valuable part of your education here at Collin College. This Lab Manual has been compiled to give you the information and the forms that you will need to be a successful student this semester.

Please take the time to read through the Getting Started section as well as all the areas of this Lab Manual that pertain to you. It is very important that you make sure you understand which forms you will need to turn in.
