About this Program

Caring for and working with children, youth, families, and/or the elderly is important to students of the CACE program. In a non-lecture-based format, students enjoy an interactive, hands-on experience and gain valuable information, insight, and networking opportunities with guest speakers, discussions, and many other activities.

The program covers human development, behavior management, learning environments, planning curriculums, implementing strategies for learning, and practical experience. In addition, site visits, service learning and two internships help students gain even more real-world experience in multiple areas of child and adult care, choosing from early childhood studies, special education, infant care, school involvement, and senior centers.
