This two-year program is designed to prepare you for a variety of careers serving children. You'll learn how to plan and implement age-appropriate activities in creative arts, math, science, music, and language for preschool children in the Tech Campus Preschool. Instruction will focus on the positive guidance of child behavior and all aspects of their development.
What will my classes be like?
Start off by discovering how to guide child behavior and promote child safety and nutrition. Plan activities in art, music, science, math, language, large motor, and drama in one of our two preschool labs. Once you understand the emotional, social, intellectual, and physical aspects of young children, you can play an important role in making a positive difference in a child's life.
