| March 18, 2019

Students in Mrs. Sacks’ Child Psych and Early Childhood classes recently visited SUNY Schenectady and YWCA to learn what it takes to be career ready for futures in Education and Human Services. FACS gives students a hands-on approach to the real world.  It provides experiences that reinforce classroom content to make them better prepared for life after high school. This trip helped students in understanding the connection between school, work and postsecondary education.

Professor Tammy Calhoun shared a day in the life of an Early Childhood college student as students to toured the on-site Montessori Preschool and Daycare Facilities.
