Course Description

Child care is designed to train students to work as aides in preschool and day care centers. The students will study principles of child care and learn how to plan developmentally appropriate activities. An overview of other careers in child care will also be provided. Practical experience is in the on-site preschool, which meets three (3) days a week.

Students planning to advance in child care careers will need to continue their education at a community college or a four-year university.

With instructor permission, highly motivated juniors may return as Child Care II students. In addition to more instruction in child care principles, they will assume additional responsibilities such as planning and leading the activities in the on-site lab.
