School-Age Education (55440)

Description

The school-age education curriculum prepares individuals to work with children in elementary through middle grades in diverse learning environments. Students will combine learned theories with practice in actual settings with school-age children under the supervision of qualified teachers.

Course work includes child growth and development; computer technology in education; physical and nutritional needs of school-age children; care and guidance of school-age children; and communication skills with families and children. Students will foster the cognitive and language, physical and motor, social and emotional, and creative development of school-age populations.

Graduates are prepared to plan and implement developmentally appropriate programs in school-aged environments. Employment opportunities include school-age teachers in child care programs, before- and after-school programs, paraprofessional positions in public and private schools, recreational centers, and other programs that work with school-age populations.

Additional Information

North Carolina Child Care Licensing Regulations require that all volunteers working in the Early Childhood field obtain a federal criminal background check. Because most of our courses require students to enter child care centers and schools, all students enrolled in the Early Childhood and School Age programs are required to obtain a federal criminal background check and submit to the Program Chair a copy of the qualification letter they receive from the state. A negative report may prevent students from participating in required courses, which means that the student cannot complete the program requirements. An application process will be required prior to students entering into EDU 214 and EDU 285. Students must have at least a 2.5 GPA, C or higher in Early Childhood courses and be in their last two semesters in order to register for EDU 214 and EDU 285. Please contact the program chair of School-Age Education if you have any questions.
