O.E.C., Nanny Caregiving
The nanny caregiving occupational endorsement prepares the student for work as a knowledgeable in-home childcare provider. Students who successfully complete the program will acquire the skills to support the development of infants and young children under their care to grow and thrive in a nurturing environment. The program includes a foundation in child development from prenatal through the elementary school years as well as coursework in curriculum development for various ages, safe healthy learning environments, culture and the young child, and positive social and emotional development.
The occupational endorsement was designed to enable students to complete their coursework in just two terms with careful advising. The program uses performance-based assessment rather than testing. The courses are available 100% online allowing students to work at their own convenience during the designated timeline of the course or with synchronous options.
