“After graduating from Cuyamaca College with an associate degree in child development, I knew I was prepared to excel in the field of early childhood.  The experiences I had at Cuyamaca gave me the necessary tools to provide a quality program both in the classroom and administratively.”
Jill Griggs, Sycuan Education Department Preschool Coordinator, graduating class of 2000.
