Cecil College recently received a $47,353 grant from the Maryland State Department of Education’s Division of Early Childhood to fund their program to help childcare providers across the county pursue a college degree.
“The continuation of this grant is an exciting opportunity for Cecil County and those individuals working in child care to have their tuition paid for,” Jennifer Greenfield, Professor of Teacher Education at Cecil College, said.
The grant goes towards a program at the college called The Child Care Career and Professional Development Fund. The fund, along with the grant which has been going on for five years, helps child care providers cover the cost of tuition, books, and fees for childcare providers interested in pursuing an Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree in Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education.
