Certificate in Early Childhood Education

The Certificate in Early Childhood Education program at Cal U is a completely online graduate program for certified teachers interested in gaining additional certification in early childhood education.

You’ll apply knowledge of child development, families and best teaching practices to a variety of educational settings, including public schools pre-K to grade 4 primary programs, preschool programs, Head Start, child care, and parenting and family support programs.

Our program emphasizes a constructivist teaching philosophy that takes into consideration the prior knowledge and background of individual learners. The program is based on best practices, is performance-based, and engages learners in research-based practices that will prepare them to work with children in pre-K to fourth grade.

We designed our program for both degree and certification candidates. You can earn a master’s degree (33 credits) or Post Bachelor's Certification (24 credits).
