In Baker’s Child Care Assistant certificate program, you learn how to provide care in school settings, day care centers, licensed day care homes, and other child care environments, working under the direction of staff members who are responsible for planning and supervising the children’s activities.
Through our curriculum, you apply theory and practice learned in the classroom with actual work experience in a child care setting. You learn how to help infants, toddlers and preschoolers develop important skills through art, literature, and play. Our curriculum has been designed by child care professionals and offers a thorough, holistic approach to meet the developmental, emotional and recreational needs of young children.
As a graduate, you’ll be prepared for a position in a school setting, day care center, or private home setting. Plus, your studies prepare you for the Child Development Associate (CDA) assessment and process—the national credential recognized by the Council for Early Childhood Professional Recognition. The CDA credential is listed as a qualification for teaching staff and/or directors in child care regulations in 46 states and the District of Columbia.
