This is an introductory course for both young men and women who are interested in the field of teaching with a focus on young children from birth to age eight. Students will be chosen to participate in the program through an application and interview process during their sophomore year of high school. During the first year of the program, topics of study include learning theory, observation and assessment, classroom management, growth and development, as well as health, safety, and nutrition. Students will have the opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills working with professionals in our on-site Pre-K program to implement theory into practice. Students will be expected to plan and implement developmentally appropriate activity plans with the Pre-K children.
This course meets Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, and Fri.
This course is held at Sanford Regional Technical Center.
