Early Childhood Education Administrator (Advanced)

Our programs in Early Childhood Education are dedicated to professional excellence, and both the Basic and Advanced Core Certificate Programs meet academic requirements for Title 5 and Title 22 Regulations for Professional Growth Activities and apply toward Child Development Permits. The curriculum, developed in cooperation with UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, is designed to meet the needs of both supervisors and teachers and is a stimulating blend of practical methodology and current research.

Highly respected, creative, and dynamic instructors offer classes to a diverse student body throughout the greater Los Angeles community at convenient times and locations. Students may elect to specialize in a specific area of study by choosing from a wide variety of elective courses. Personal academic counseling is available.

The Advanced Core Program prepares students for an administrative or supervisory role in programs for young children ages 0-5.

Courses in the X 300 to X 399 series provide credit that may lead to advanced standing in baccalaureate degree and teacher credentialing programs and are credit-bearing courses in the field of Education.
