Program Description


This program prepares students for work as lead teacher or assistant in a day care or preschool. Students learn the theories of human development and physical growth along with family and diversity issues. Topics include applying theory to practical situations, major development in physical and psychological growth, and developmentally appropriate practice. Students will learn how to develop a unit plan, develop a lesson plan, create an effective classroom environment, and understand the cognitive and behavioral differences in stages of early childhood.

This career and academic track is designed for students with learning differences or disabilities that impact learning. This track provides instruction that is multisensory, multimodal, personalized, and incorporates elements of universal design for learning. Classes are taught with a 6 to 1 student-teacher ratio to better meet the needs of individual learners.​
