Another Workforce Development Cohort from High Road Upper School has completed the 15-hour Childcare Teacher’s Aide course at Prince George’s community College. The 15- hour courses consisted of two classes: Basic early learning childcare techniques and communications techniques when working with parent. Students also learned to design a floor plan for a classroom and develop a basic lesson plan for a variety of age groups. All six members of the childcare cohort passed the end of course exam and are eligible -as certified by the state of Maryland- to work as teacher’s aide in licensed childcare facilities. After classes each member participated in classroom observations at a local daycare center and were also able to interact with the students. Students will begin participating in internships opportunities after the winter break.
Let’s congratulate the following students as they continue to improve and progress through their goals:
