One of the most important parts of earning a degree in Early Childhood Education is completing externship or internship hours with licensed facilities to gain hands-on experience. Students in Penn Foster’s Early Childhood Education Associate Degree can expect excellent instruction from knowledgeable faculty and, now, they’re able to work with Learning Care Group centers to get their field experience hours. We’re all excited to partner with such an amazing group! Students in the degree program can gain real-life experience that will complement their studies at several different centers such as La Petite Academy and Childtime Learning Centers, among others.
Besides getting the hands-on experience necessary to graduate, students working at one of Learning Care Group’s centers will be able to make real connections in the industry, as well as other benefits.
