Child Development Services provides training for entry-level positions in day care centers, kindergartens and private homes. Students who plan to work with children (teaching, nursing, social work) in the future are encouraged to enroll in the class. Students study careers in child development, child development and guidance, children's health and well-being in group care, value of play, teaching strategies and management and curriculum development. Students will spend part of each school week working in area preschools and daycares. Students can also earn the Commonwealth Child Care Credential and the Child Development Associate Credential.
