Thirteen students at Dickinson High School are learning what it might be like to work as a child care provider or a preschool teacher.
The students are teaching a Magical Wonders Preschool through their child-related careers class. The class began before Thanksgiving and concludes Jan. 4.
“It’s to expose high school students to careers in child care,” instructor Pam Moormann said.
The students use Mondays as preparation days. Then every morning, 14 children arrive for story time, crafts, music, science and math.
This year’s theme is centered around astronauts.
“The children call it astro-nut school, Moormann said.
Brett Schweitzer took the class because it sounded like fun.
“We have a good time with the kids and we can teach them something,” he said.
“It’s to learn more about child education and to see if it’s something you want to get into,” student Cassie Hushka said.
Megan Jorgenson took the class to learn more about children.
“They make our day,” she added.
