Early Childhood Education (Technical Certificate)

(Designed for the student who does not intend to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.)

The Early Childhood Development certificate program is designed to prepare individuals to work with children birth through third grade and their families in a variety of childcare settings. The program provides early childhood development instruction based upon the criteria developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (N.A.E.Y.C.). Graduates from the program should be prepared to individually successfully complete the National Child Development Associate (C.D.A.) credentialing process. The classes are part of the process meeting competency goals for the national certificate, but are designed for any Early Childhood college student. The certificate from Columbia State Community College is not the C.D.A. certificate.

All courses in the Early Childhood Development certificate program articulate into the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program in Early Childhood Education.
