Child Care and Development 1 (Nursery School Experience)
This course involves the practical application of child development in a specially designed nursery school for three- and four-year-old children from our community. Students plan and teach lessons, lead craft projects and games, and create bulletin boards in the preschool lab as well as guide the behavior and observe the development of children. This course is an excellent introduction to teaching or for students planning careers working with children. Enrolled students must complete the Act 34 Pennsylvania Criminal History Check and the Act 151 Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Check. There is no cost for these required clearances. A detailed process for these applications can be found here.
