Last Updated on Dec 12, 2014 at 3:09pm | Secondary Education

Mrs. Barbara Law, Child Care Instructor at both SHS and NHS, organizes a field trip each semester for Southern and Northern students to travel to two Morgantown child care facilities.  During their visits, students tour the facilities, hear from directors and other managers, and have the opportunity to interact with some of the children.  The Child Care courses prepare students for careers in not only Day Care Centers/Child Care but Early Childhood Education/Elementary Education.   At the conclusion of Child Care I and II, students have the opportunity to earn credentials in various levels of child care and also CPR/First Aid Certification.
