Wayne Community College will offer an early childhood education course in Mount Olive this fall.

Curriculum Planning will be taught 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Mondays at Mt. Olive Kiddie College.

"This is the first semester in many years that an early childhood course has been offered off campus, and the first time a course of this nature has been offered in Mount Olive," said Early Childhood Education Department Chair Jodi Baker. "We wanted to help alleviate travel time for child care providers at that end of the county."

At least 10 students must register for this college-credit class in order for it to be held.

New and returning students can sign up for courses 8 a.m.-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 13 and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 14.

To be eligible to sign up for this course, students must have taken Introduction to Childhood Education (EDU 119) or the equivalent and meet certain reading and writing requirements.

"Students must also have an active status with the college, but can easily obtain that by completing the required paperwork at the college," Ms. Baker said.

Anyone interested in taking this course should contact Ms. Baker at 919-739-6794 or jbbaker@waynecc.edu. For information on WCC's Early Childhood Education program and individual courses, go to www.waynecc.edu/early-childhood/.
