Course Description:


This course is intended for students who plan to study Child Care Administration and/or complete studies toward the New York State Children’s Program Administrator Credential. This two-credit advanced study invites future leaders in the child care profession to examine the history of child care as a profession, the history of child care credentialing, child care ethics, and an overview of competencies needed to succeed as a professional leader and manager. Students will have an opportunity to observe and evaluate child care settings as well as interview administrators and parents about their experiences with child care. To assist them in further classes in the child care administration sequence, students will prepare a resource portfolio as a final project.

Important Note: This course was renamed effective the September 2014 term and was formerly offered as Exploring the Professions: Child Care Advanced. Students who have successfully completed 254322 should not enroll in this course.
