Nanny Child Care Provider (CRT.NCCP)

This program prepares the student for the care of children in a live-out or live-in family-oriented setting. In addition to developing the skills and knowledge needed to provide for the child's physical, intellectual, emotional and social well-being, the nanny will acquire basic home management skills. Emphasis is also given to interpersonal relationships since the nanny is often considered a member of the family. A "C" average in required Early Childhood Care and Education core classes must be maintained by students prior to enrolling in ECE 125.

ECE 120 and 125 must be taken the same semester.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
