ECE – Family Childcare Certificate
Certificate | SC Program: CL.3154
The Early Childhood Education Family Childcare Certificate offers students initial training for employment as a family childcare provider. After completion of the 17-unit certification program, the student will be prepared to seek a family childcare provider position or family childcare licensure (assuming ability to pass Community Care Licensing [California Department of Social Services] requirements related to physical site).
This is a locally approved certificate. Upon satisfactory completion of the listed requirements and application for completion of the certificate to Admissions and Records, the student will receive a certificate of completion. This certificate program is not approved through the California Community College Chancellor’s Office; therefore, completion of the certificate will not be listed on the student’s transcript.
