Early Childhood Education Certificate
Children are driven by a natural curiosity and determination that makes them perfect learners. Teachers learn how to harness this curiosity and leverage their intrinsic love of learning. They understand the developmental changes that accompany childhood and guide their students as they explore new areas of life. The Early Childhood Education Certificate is designed to help you fully understand the growth and development of children – from birth through eight years of age. Our experienced instructors provide a strong foundation in theory and practice, focused on the total environment of the child. You’ll learn to address the unique needs of young children, including those with exceptionalities and special needs.
