Employment opportunities include child development and child care programs, preschools, public and private schools, Head Start Programs, and school age programs. Students planning to work in field of child care are required to undergo a criminal records check upon employment. In some cases, the individual’s criminal record could prohibit him/her from being employed in a child care facility. If you have questions regarding your own criminal record history, you need to contact the NC Division of Child Development at 800-859-0829 to discuss your employability. Other schools and agencies may have similar requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to find out about their own employability with any employer.

If a student is disqualified by the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education, the student will not be able to participate in any practicum or other practical experience.  This would include courses EDU 214 and EDU 284; therefore, the student would not be able to complete the diploma or associate degree in Early Childhood.

A Criminal Records Check may be required in some practicum placements.  The approximate cost is $50.
