Building Futures - Creating Meaningful Lives

Education and Human Services

The two-year Education and Human Services program includes instruction in child growht and development, nutrition, recreation, planning and supervision of play and learning activities, child abuse and neglect prevention, parent-child relationships, and applicable legal and administrative requirements. Throughout the program, students gain practical hands-on experience working with children.
Students operate a laboratory school under the direction of the Education and Human Services program teacher. The on-site laboratory school gives students practical experience working with three- and four-year-old children before they enter their off-site work-based learning experience. Work-based sites range from Head Start through Elementary school classrooms. Students will have a minimum of 250 hours working with young children.
