Early Childhood Education

Infant / Toddler Pathways Certificate

This certificate provides you with basic skills in the early care and education of infants and toddlers. It is designed for students just entering the early care and education field, those who wish to focus their education and work experience with infants and toddlers, and  those already employed in child care, but who need an immediate certificate to continue working in an Oregon licensed facility. Graduates may continue to seek the associate degree seamlessly, since all of the certificate classes are wholly contained within the degree program.

Careers

The State of Oregon requires individuals working in a licensed child care facility to have at least 14 college credits of Early Childhood Education. The classes offered in this certification are specific to those seeking to work with infants and toddlers under age three. All credits earned as part of the Early Childhood Certificate may be applied to the associate degree.
