Early Childcare Education

Child Care is an occupational field in which opportunities for employment exist for various levels of competency.  An introduction to early childhood education and knowledge of caring for children may prove invaluable to student's in their personal life, as well as being used to gain part-time or full-time employment.  Students pursuing a career in elementary education are encouraged to enroll.  This program is designed to prepare students to assist in the learning activities, social development, and aily living activities of young children.  The class emphasizes appropriate behavior, communication and socialization skills, preacademics, and health concerns.  Students will be offered the opportunity to become prepared to be entry-level employees in day care centers.

Child Care I (2 credits) consists of two nine-week sessions.  During the first nine weeks, students will be in a regular classroom setting.  During the second nine weeks, students will be assigned to an elementary classroom four days of the week to assist the teacher and to work directly with children.  Child Care II (2 credits) offers a more intense study of child development and guidance principles as well as more time work directly with students.
