Early Childhood Education – The Program

Credits: BUHS , Sending Schools

Duration: Full Year

In the Early Childhood Education Program at the WRCC students will develop the knowledge, skills and experience to help you work effectively with young children aged birth to 8 and their families. These skills are based on industry standards and professional competencies in child development family and community, teaching and learning, health and safety, professionalism and program organization.

This program is great for you if you are interested in the development of children, enjoy interpersonal communications and working with a variety of people, care about making a difference for children and families in your community, and you want to gain theoretical background and practical experience in the field of education and early education.

Participants in this program will learn how to practice and model effective communication, observation strategies, and develop  partnerships with children and their families. They will learn how to employ strategies to maintain a safe, healthy and nurturing learning environment in childcare in school settings.

An important goal of this program will be to help students explore pathways and demonstrate preparedness for work and continuing study  such as pursuing an AA degree with the Community College of Vermont and working towards Advanced Standing (Level III A) on the Vermont Early Childhood Career Ladder.
