Early Childhood Educator Program
The Early Childhood Educator Program is being designed to provide current early childhood teachers with a comprehensive understanding of developmentally appropriate practices in early childhood. Early childhood teachers are encouraged to take all 11 courses. These courses are also being aligned to the Child Development Associate (CDA) national credentialing program so that teachers completing all 11-courses will be prepared to apply for the CDA credential.
Bold courses are already being offered. Watch for others to be added soon.
