This curriculum prepares students not currently working in child care to qualify to gain employment in either early childhood or infant-toddler or family child care programs. This curriculum can also be chosen by students who are currently working in child care that do not elect to pursue the national CDA Credential as described in the Child Development Certificate of Mastery. As part of this curriculum plan, students complete three teaching methodology courses designed to give them hands-on experiences working with young children from birth to age eight.
