Students will develop a broad range of skills through the study and practice of our certified and approved courses so they will be able to develop and lead daily activities for children.

They will become nurturing and understanding Caregivers/Educators, who will implement carefully selected materials and activities to help promote the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and early literacy development in each child. Some of these exciting activities include storytelling and fingerplays, music and movement, songs and games, creative arts and crafts, science and nature opportunities, along with many other activities that support children’s development and learning through play. They also observe children and communicate professionally, when appropriate, children’s progress and/or needs with parents, other staff members and individuals involved with the child’s development.
