    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class if you're interested in becoming a teacher or working with children. I personally thought it was a waste of time since you're mostly learning about things pertaining to working in a preschool or being a child car provider.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of taking this course is that there isn't much work to be done just pass all the nova tests and you'll do great the first year.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to just focus on studying for the upcoming exams and turn in your work overall.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anybody who enjoys working with children or has a heart for creativity! This course has taught me so much about guiding children and teaching them as they progress through their education. It is also great to complete this course because you graduate with your CDA certification and CPR/First Aid training which is great knowledge to have after you graduate, whether you are planning to be a teacher or not. Overall this course was an awesome experience and opportunity that I am glad that I took starting in freshman year. Now I am a senior and in the last step of the program where I get to apply what I have learned the past 3 years as I intern as a teaching assistant for kindergarten.

    Course highlights:

    Through taking this course, I learned how to handle various situations with children while developing leadership skills, as well as multitasking and people skills. I have been able to develop these skills over the past 4 years, working in the preschool with children and learning how to direct them appropriately while developing positive relationships.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed I would suggest working on your confidence because if you aren't confident in yourself, you will not be able to be an advocate for the children you are supposed to be teaching. Writing is also a very large portion of the course because you are being federally certified, so you have to be able to put together a well written, professional essay.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I unfortunately didn't finish this course, I was in the 4th quarter but had to leave due to personal reasons. However, in my time doing the course I learned a lot not just about how to be teachers to toddlers and adolescents but about how they think, act and develop. Many people would think this course is to prepare you on becoming a preschool teacher but it is not the case. Many people can take this course to learn specifically about children. I learned about specific things such as how to change a diaper, what to do if a child falls and hits their head, different careers involving children such as a social worker. Another great thing is that we had the opportunity to take certification tests for free, which gives you a head start in your career, or if you want to babysit they see you know a thing or two about children, etc.

    Course highlights:

    In my particular class, we divided five important things we needed to learn into units, which were: Child Development, Child Abuse/Neglect, Health/Safety/Nutrition, Behavior,Observation and Screening, and Rules and Regulations. It was a hands on class as well and we did many scenarios and practical activities. For example, in child abuse and neglect, we were given real life scenarios and acted out what we would do if this was to happen in a child care facility. We demonstrated if we called 911 first, then got the first aid kit, etc. overall, it is mainly about children and how to take care of them based on their needs. Even if you are not interested in the Child care or preschool teacher field. This course can help you in any career where you may have to deal with children such as police, firefighter, social workers, psychologists, restaurant managers, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My strongest advice I can give is you must be prepared for a lot of information and memorization. This course is easy, but only if you attend your classes due to the amount of material you need to know. Studying depends on you. Your results on tests and in the class depend on how much work you put in,
