(ATEL) provides students who are interested in developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical development of young children and youth with learning opportunities that prepares them for careers in the field of education, primarily in early childhood education and as K-12 teachers. While the Academy focuses on broad, transferable skills, it stresses understanding and demonstration of child growth and development, developmentally appropriate practices, classroom management, child abuse and neglect, and community, health, safety, nutrition and environmental issues. Real world experiences give students a glimpse into the life of a teacher as they create developmentally appropriate experiences and lesson plans and work with area preschools and elementary schools. The Child Development and Education and Training pathways prepare students for entry level positions in the workforce and success in postsecondary education and training programs.
