Early Childhood Education at North Canyon
The Early Childhood Education program is designed to prepare students for employment in early childhood settings and includes instruction in child growth and development, child health, nutrition, safety, planning, and supervision of developmentally-appropriate practices and learning activities. Child guidance, family relationships, parenting, and applicable legal and administrative requirements are also addressed. Preparation for the development and management of effective early childhood programs and facilities is included.
Students develop leadership and community service skills through participation in a career technical student organization (CTSO) FCCLA, where they also have the opportunity to compete at a local, state or international level
