Early Childhood Education Administrator (Advanced)


The last day for students to enroll for the advanced core certificate and pay the $50 dollar certificate fee will be in Winer 2017 (date to be determined).

We will still offer the same courses in the certificate, but no longer the certificate itself. If students have enrolled in the certificate before August 15th, they will still be able to complete it and get the certificate once they are finished.
Students can enroll for the certificate by going to our website at www.uclaextension.edu or calling registration at (310)-825-9971 and ask to enroll in CF093 (Early Childhood Advanced Core Certificate).
Please let us know if you have any questions.

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 is organized for those students who have completed the Basic Core Program and wish to prepare for an administrative or supervisory role in programs for young children ages 0-5.
