Our Early Childhood Education class can give you the opportunity to learn about children and how they develop, learn and play by using hands-on experience. In this class, you will get experience reading to children, playing with children, planning activities, making healthy snacks and learning how to be a team player in a preschool setting.
The ECE morning program collaborates with RSU 1 Adult Education, running the early learning center for the Sail Into Literacy Program. In addition, we place students in the local Family Focus and Head Start settings to offer a variety of field site locations for students to learn and practice. Students will rotate through these placements throughout the year.
The ECE II program runs a three to five year old program three days a week. This program provides a preschool experience to local children by giving them an enriched classroom setting. During this second year, students’ skills and knowledge will grow and the students will be prepared to continue their education or enter the workforce after graduation.
