Child Care Services

Posted on
Students in our Early Childhood Education program receive practical experience at local daycares in the community. Students study all the phases of child development: physical, social, emotional and intellectual. They learn about nutrition, guidance, and discipline.
Students also study how to help children develop daily living skills, teach them the value of play, literature, music, art, math, and science in child development. Students present a series of learning and developmental activities in child care facilities practicing their creative teaching, child caring and management skills.
