The Early Childhood Teacher Education program is a program in which high school students prepare for careers in child–related occupations, earning high school honors credits and/or Dual Enrollment college credits.
Career possibilities may include teaching, child psychology, social work, and day–care ownership. The program prepares students for post–secondary education or immediate entry into the Palm Beach County workforce. Students gain teaching experience through internships at area preschools and elementary schools.
Early Childhood Teacher Education programs provide students with teaching experience in the laboratory preschools located on the Lake Worth High School campus.
Students enjoy opportunities to earn college-level employment certifications during high school without spending further time and money after graduation.
