Recently, the Newburgh Enlarged City School District Early Childhood Development and Care Program held a special graduation for three and four year old students enrolled in the Teens and Tots Program at the Newburgh Free Academy North Campus.
The Early Childhood Development and Care Program, part of the Career and Technical Education Department, is designed for Newburgh Free Academy students who enjoy working with children and have set an early childhood career as part of their future goals. The program introduces the student to responsibilities for planning, preparing and caring for children in a group situation. In addition, students participate in the management of the Teens and Tots nursery program. The program provides students with real world experience in the education fields and acts a stepping stone for students that will pursue further schooling in the field of early education.
