Sussex County Vocational Technical School District


The Early Care and Education program examines the growth and development patterns of infant, toddler, and preschool children and how these patterns can be enhanced. Components of the course include child-development theory, infant, toddler and preschool methods and activities, managing a classroom, exceptional children, and the regulations of a child care center. Laboratory time is spent in the state-licensed day care center, Parents and Children Together at Tech (PACTT), located on the campus at Sussex Technical High School.

This is an excellent program for any student considering owning and/or operating a child care center, or engaging in a profession related to early childhood education, elementary education, social work, or child psychology.
