The Community Connection Child Care Specialist Apprenticeship Program is a State Recognized, two-year program. We strive to improve the quality of childcare in America by giving childcare workers extensive classroom and on-the-job training (OJT). During the program's six semmesters students will study first aid, CPR for young children, curriculum for developmentally appropriate activities for young children, 10-hour modules for special needs children, curriculum for infant and toddler, and curriculum for the after school care for school-age children. Students will have the opportunity to do hands-on activities to use with young children at their childcare centers. This program meets Child & Family Services licensing standards of a CDA equivalency.
In most cases, a great deal of financial resources and energy are required to prepare for a career, but in our registered apprenticeship program, you are paid a progressively increased wage while you are working and you learn this exciting occupation. This program is an aggressive step toward addressing what has become one of the most urgent needs of America's working families-quality childcare and good wages for childcare workers. Learning Materials are loaned to the apprentices each semester. Apprentices are required to work a total of 4,000 hours of on-the-Job Training and 400 class hours for successful completion of the program.
Classes are Hybrid so On-Line availability due to the present Corona Pandemic.
The first years of our lives are a formative period that can lay the foundation for our growth into adulthood. A career in Early Childhood Education prepares you with the skills necessary to help cultivate healthy growth in children, shaping their lives and the communities that they live in for the better.
Apprenticeship stakeholders – employers, educators, and workforce professionals – across the country are launching apprenticeship programs for youth ages 16-24. This program combines technical classroom instruction with paid work experience. We provide the foundation for young people to choose multiple career pathways, enroll in college, begin employment, or a combination.
We maintain partnerships with businesses, high schools, community and technical colleges, and local communities and develop youth apprenticeship programs that make a difference in the lives of youth while supporting economic and workforce development.
We provide new opportunities for youth and ways for businesses to recruit new talent.
We graduated 4 gainfully employed participants this year!
