Admission to the Early Childhood Development Programs requires qualifying scores on the College’s placement test, or SAT or ACT, and a high school diploma or equivalent. Prior to entry, students must submit evidence of a negative TB test, and complete a Department of Social Services (DSS) letter of non-conviction, criminal background check, and DSS required medical forms, which includes a health assessment.
Several courses require both lecture and lab hours at the nationally accredited York Technical College Child Development Center; in some cases labs are off-campus. The programs are designed to provide training for the person already employed in child care as well as to prepare those who plan to enter the field. Laboratory settings require criminal background checks, processed through SC State Law Enforcement Division (SLED), before allowing students to participate in laboratory experiences. Any conviction of the following will make the applicant ineligible for employment in any child care facility and therefore, ineligible to participate in laboratory experiences required in ECD courses: offenses against the person, offenses against morality and indecency; contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
