Care and Development of Young Children (190709)

Programs in the Care and Development of Young Children (CDYC) discipline prepare students to effectively educate young children while assuring their health, safety, and well-being in a number of professional settings. In Fall 2016, Nunez Community College opened a new early childhood classroom simulation lab houses in the College's Fine Arts Center.

Available Programs in CDYC:
Technical Competency Area
Certificate of Applied Science

The single course Technical Competency Area (TCA) serves as a credentialing course for Teachers at Child Care Centers seeking a 2-Star level or above under Louisiana's Quality Rating System.

The Certificate of Applied Science Program provides significant training that meets the 5-star requirements for Lead Teachers under Louisiana's Quality Rating System and meets most training requirements for Assistant Directors.

The Associate of Applied Science meets the child development training for a 5-Star Child Care Director under Louisiana's Quality Rating System.
