Tiger Tots - Joliet West Campus
Tiger Tots is a program designed to give high school students a chance to work with preschool children. The Tiger Tots program is run within the 3 levels of Child Care classes, Child Development, Occupational; Child Care 1 and 2. High school students prepare by studying characteristics of children and developing lessons for the Tiger Tots and actually teaching them. While high school students teach, others observe the children and how they act socially, emotionally and cognitively. The students also do modules that are designed by the state of Illinois Gateways Program for work with children, and if completed they will receive a certificate of completion which enables them to have that requirement completed if they work in a DCFS licensed child care center.
