Program Description


Child Care Providers attend to children in schools, businesses, private households, and child care institutions.  They perform a variety of tasks such as dressing, feeding, and overseeing play; are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the children in their care; and work as part of a team.  CCBC offers four different course series options for students interested in this career track (see scenario options below). The instruction in these scenarios includes skills for relating well to children and their parents or caregivers

Program Outcomes


Successful Completion

CCBC Credential:

Students will earn a CCBC Workforce Training Certificate and have access to a Continuing Education academic record (transcript). Students will receive their 99 hour child care certificate and be eligible for their state certification.
