Preparation for Application
Prospective students are advised to speak to employers in group homes, mental health settings, and the education system. Volunteer and/or part-time employment with children and youth is highly encouraged.
Criminal Record Check and Immunization Requirements
Sheridan field practicum agencies may require a police record check for criminal offences, a vulnerable sector check and/or a current acceptable record of immunization. Students will be required to provide this documentation directly to their field practicum prior to the start of the practicum and at their own expense. Students who cannot meet these requirements may have limited field practicum opportunities.
When you graduate from Sheridan’s Child and Youth Care program, you’ll be ready to begin a rewarding career in this field.
