This course of study for the child care aide is one of a series available for use by teacher-coordinators and students in Grade 11 and 12 home economics cooperative education programs.

Intended for teacher use in course planning or for independent study by students, the course outline relates tasks to general objectives and competencies needed to perform effectively on the job.
