Students in the Early Childhood Education Associate of Applied Science program may elect to receive an Early Childhood Paraeducator certificate after completing the A.A.S. degree requirements. This certificate complements the Early Childhood Education program by offering additional classes for those students pursuing a career as an early childhood teacher or provider. The Early Childhood Paraeducator certificate also fulfills the educational requirement for those working toward an infant/toddler or preschool Child Development Associate (CDA) administrated by the Council for Professional recognition in Washington D.C. and meets the requirements for clock hours of formal child care education required for the CDA credential. Please consult with the Social Sciences department for more information regarding this option.
