Welcome to the Center for Child Care Careers
Vocational School. 4CS Center for Child Care Careers is dedicated
to training and educating post-secondary students to provide
quality early care and education, and agency/center management.
We recruit students from all levels of experience, beginners
to program directors. We empower our students to appropriately
educate and care for children and be employed in child care
centers/nursery schools, public schools, family child care homes
and as nannies in the child’s own home.
All instruction is provided by recognized leaders in the field
of early care and education and management.
4CS The Center for Child Care Careers is founded
on the principle that young children should be provided with quality
early care and education. It offers interested persons the opportunity
to develop, improve and enhance their abilities and skills and prepare
for advancement in the field. The Center offers quality education and
training and does not deny admissions on the basis of race, religion,
age, creed, color, sex, physical handicap, national origin or sexual
4CS of Passaic County (4CS ), originally founded in 1971, has been offering training
since its inception. 4CS The Center for Child Care Careers was established
in 1996 in order to offer staff and managers in the field of early
care and education the opportunity to improve their skills and advance
their careers. The New Jersey Department of Education approved 4CS The Center for Child Care Careers as a vocational school in 1997.
Today, 4CS the Center for Child Care Careers
offers courses and workshops in many areas including GED preparation,
Health Education, Parenting Skills and CPR/1st Aid. Courses are tailored
to suit the needs of students and can be offered in either Spanish
or English. In addition, we design and conduct in-service training
programs for child care center staff at the center site addressing
the unique needs of that center.
As we move forward into our second decade of service, we look forward
to adding more programs and services aligned with our philosophy
of providing interested persons the opportunity to develop, improve
and enhance their abilities and skills.
