CC Campus Happenings January 2021

Happy January!

We are into the New Year with a hop, skip and jump! Great things are happening on the CC Campus. Most exciting is the move of Valley School to the CC Campus. With all things going our way, the New Valley School should be open in February. This blending of both worlds will create opportunities for all of the CC Campus kids, academically as well as career exploration.

Another exciting CC development is the P-TECH partnership with Western Community College and CC Construction program. In a nutshell, P-TECH partnership will allow those students who want an associate degree in the construction pathway the opportunity to continue their post-secondary education for free and can start the process the freshman year- EXCITING.

As you can see we are continuing to celebrate the student as the Center of Learning, supporting the 4Ps of Success and passing it forward with an Appreciation of the Human Condition.

Please join us as we work hard and do our best to celebrate the positive “happenings” in 2021.

ECP January 20-21 Newsletter

Ms. Deb and Ms. "C" say Welcome Back and Happy New Year!

Early Childcare Program students have been busy!

New students and Beginning Pathway students are working on basic child development concepts. Intermediate Pathway students are doing advanced presentations on social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-agers.

Students are working on goals set forth by the CDA (Child Development Associate) certification. (Advanced Pathway).

Our simulation baby program is a big success with the students. They are enjoying and yet are frustrated by the baby as they care for it in class and still maintain their grades.

Students who are interns will soon be going back out into their early childcare sites (as allowed with COVID licensing rules and regulations). This term they will be required to do some in depth evaluations and planning in addition to observations daily.

As always, thank you for sharing your child with me as we move them into the future.
