CHILDCARE & SUPPORT SERVICES MANAGEMENT
Care and Guidance of Young Children
Early Childhood Education Programs allow students opportunities to work with young children and their families in a group setting, such as Head Start, Early Head Start, Childcare Centers, Early Childhood Developmental Programs, Parents as Teachers, Resource and Referral Agencies as teachers, teacher assistants,paraprofessionals, home visitors, or family consultants.
Graduates also begin and operate their own Family Day Care Homes. Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA as they progress through the program, and at least 2.0 in all laboratory experiences.
Due to the nature of the work with young children and their families, all students enrolled in the courses must have a physical on file with a negative TB test, and be cleared by the Child Abuse Registry through the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
In addition to the Associate of Applied Science degree and certificate programs, Cloud County Community College offers an Associate of Science transfer degree program in Early Childhood Education.
