TEACHER ACADEMY/EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION – 900 hours
This program provides instruction in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social development of children. Aspects of teaching and working with children from birth to elementary school age are included, such as health, wellness, safety, growth, behavior, and developmental milestones. Students will learn to attend to children’s basic needs, organize activities, develop curriculum, prepare lesson plans, design and manage programs, and effectively deliver instruction in childcare, pre-school, and elementary settings. Theory in this course includes human development, psychology, ethical and professional responsibilities, communication, and the interaction of child, family, community, and schools. Clinical experiences will provide opportunities for students to develop the skills necessary to become successful future teachers and childcare providers while working directly with young children in childcare centers and schools.
NTCC is exploring articulation agreements and dual enrollment partnerships for this program of study, with the intent to have up to 12 credits available for the 2022-2023 school year.
