This program teaches the practical skills necessary to provide direct care to young children in day care and preschool centers, home day care sites, and community-based centers. Students are prepared for employment as teachers and child care assistants, and other entry-level positions in the child care field.

Because Prairie State College is an entitled institution, these courses can be used to meet Illinois Gateways Early Childhood Teacher credentials.

(According to the Department of Children and Family Service regulations, child care workers in Illinois must be at least 19 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED equivalency certificate).

Program Total: 36 credits
