At Pine Ridge we are assisting students to identify career and job opportunities; to maintain a safe, clean and healthy learning environment; to identify principles of child development; to identify age-appropriate physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development activities; and to identify rules and regulations that govern childcare. We do all of this while also being the happiest place on campus
