Children say and do the cutest things. An impromptu dance, an impish giggle or a hug to a cuddly animal, real or velveteen, can bring smiles to even the most adult of faces. And who can resist a handful of Cheerios? I certainly can’t when they are offered up by my 11- month-old granddaughter. But for some, these little joys are more than the stuff of family life, they are the daily benefits of a career in child care.
But it’s not all fun and games. There is a lot of learning going on during those formative years and I truly admire those who dedicate their professional life to helping young children develop both mentally and physically. If this sounds like something you could see yourself doing or are already working at a daycare center but haven’t earned a degree, plan on attending the Education/Early Childhood College and Career Fair, on Monday, Nov. 30, 6:30 – 8 p.m., at Macomb’s University Center on Center Campus.
Learn about Macomb’s Associate Degree Program in Early Childhood Studies, T.E.A.C.H. Scholarships available to those working part time in child care, transfer options to earn a bachelor’s degree and employment opportunities.
