v SfJL, ZjlT g3 u ' IJ smcirrriEiiyrai cza dl era I Wednesday, January 13, 1988 UVCC's Childhood Development bv Jnnnc Jeremy How can children ages three to six attend UVCC? By enrolling in the UVCC Children Center run by the Early Childhood Development Department Ann Cox, department chairperson and director of the Child Development Center, started the program in 1974. It has grown into a nationally recognized program modeled by several states. "We've had several schools call and ask about our program," said Cox. The Children's Center is licensed for 44 children. It gives students the opportunity to put skills learned in class to use. The state requires a maximum ratio of 12 children per teacher (or student). This quarter children are receiving extra attention with one student for every five children. The Children's Center is a self-supported lab, and charges only $7.95 a day. Parents can choose to enroll their children three to five days a week for a full or half day. Cox said, "Children only needing occasional care should get a neighbor or babysitter." She believes it is too hard for children to establish healthy friendship patterns if they attend class less than the given schedule. The daily schedule begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. During this time six specific areas of development are focused upon. 1. Physical-skills using New Classes in The GraphicCommercial Art Department is offering an exciting new class in air brush painting this quarter.

Unknown to most of us, this group is a major force in many, if not all, of the academic decisions made at UVCC. This group consists of senate members and an executive committee most of whom are elected by the school's contracted faculty members. Each of seven divisions elects a specific number of faculty members to represent them on the senate. The elected senators serve a three-year term and the division with the largest number of senators is General Studies with a present total of three representatives. The divisions are: Learning Resources and Services; Division of Continuing Education; School of Trades and Industries; School of Business; School of Technology; School of General Studies; and School of Health Occupations. Most of the routine work of the Faculty Senate is done by standing committees. At present, there are nine major committees. The first of these is the Executive Committee. It consists of the Faculty Senate President, Barbara Hoge (OAST); President Elect, Orrin Nelson (Automo); Past President, Dennis Farnsworth (GE); SecretaryTreasurer, Doris Garner (OAST); the College President and the Academic Vice President (both positions are held by Dr. Lucille Stoddard). This committee provides the leadership for the Senate. The Tenure Committee periodically reviews faculty tenure policy and procedure to make suggestions for changes. The Academic Standards Committee considers students petitions for exception to college policy, and makes recommendations for changes in the academic policy of the college. Other committees include the Academic Policy Advisory Committee, the Personnel and Elections Committee, The Curriculum Committee, the Faculty Merit Evaluation center so much they cried when told they couldn't attend. "The Child Development Center is completely child oriented," said Cox. The equipment is excellent and toys are specifically chosen for cognitive growth. Breakfast, hot lunch and snack is served daily. 1,582 meals were served last quarter. The Children's Center has a new policy for enrolling children because the waiting list exceeded 200 children. Each May a new waiting list will be created. Parents desiring to enroll their children are required to renew their application in May. The demand for the care center is high. "We need double the space," said Cox. Second year students assist in teaching the parent's class. The department takes the stand that parents are the experts on their own children, but students are the experts on the group. Realizing parents seldom have to deal with 44 children at one time. Second year students are also required to do volunteer work for PERCS at the Orem Library. Students can help parents with simple problems such as nutrition, or sleeping concerns. All classes transfer to local schools. Two thirds of classes transfer directly for specific classes at U of U, Utah Slate and Weber State University. Some 200 level UVCC classes transfer to the U of Committee, the Budget Committee, the Salary and Benefits Committee, and other committees that the Senate may create for specific needs. The Faculty Senate is a policy advising body and has in the past been involved in such decisions as the academic calendarschedule, adddrop dates, and harassment (of or by faculty). rj--'J .

"We are very pleased," said Cox. Early Childhood Development is a great field for students planning to have a family. A licensed preschool teacher can make very good money having a child care center in their own homes.The hours and vacations fit school children's schedules. With a 1-year certificate students are qualified as effective teachers in a preschool or day care center. An AAS degree requires business and computer courses, and prepares students to manage or direct a child care center. Students taking G.E. courses in conjunction with the child development classes, can earn an AS degree and transfer to another school. "Being happy is the first prerequisite in this field," said Cox. A girl applying for a job at the Utah Regional Medical Center got the job not only because she was qualified, but because of her good disposition. "A smile is important in this field," said Cox. Students must also enjoy working with children. With a balance of class and lab-students are able to see results. "The ideal is taught in class, and must be carried through in lab," said Cox. Early Childhood Development graduates from UVCC are in demand. There weren't enough students to fill all the offers from Salt Lake Childcare Centers paying $5 per hour. The senate is concerned mainly with the academic affairs of UVCC. Their main objectives are excellence in leaching and academics, faculty cohesiveness, and teacher satisfaction and quality. According to President Hoge, "We are a constructive group not destructive. We act to build."
