Why Earn your Childcare Degree at UAF?

UAF’s unique nanny caregiving program offers opportunities for hands-on learning and research so you can complete the program prepared for your new career. Our caregiving courses don’t rely on testing to assess your knowledge, as many other caregiving programs do. Instead, you’ll be assessed through reports, reflection and feedback based on practical experience with children. Most of the nanny courses in the caregiving program require you to work with children, either directly or through online observations. The Bunnell House Early Childhood Lab School is committed to providing abundant observational opportunities for students, all while providing high-quality care to children of enrolled university students, faculty and staff.
