This program prepares students to be assistant teachers and teachers' aides in the early education and care profession. The program also provides training for individuals already employed in a preschool situation who desire to improve their knowledge and competency in working with children. 

Students who complete this program are qualified to assist teachers in all aspects of professional childcare, and to guide and supervise individual and group activities. Graduates may also transfer into the Early Childhood Education program leading to the Associate in Science degree.
