Early Childhood Education provides students with the basic skills and training for entry-level employment as a child care worker.  Through classroom instruction and work in the pre-school setting, child care students receive factual information as well as practical experience with young children.  During the first year, the students are taught basic information about the growth, development, discipline, and guidance of preschool children.  In the second year, the students will gain on-the-job skills by providing developmentally appropriate learning experiences to kindergarten age children who are located at the local elementary schools.
