Early Childhood Education Micro-Credential
with EAE Team
Passionate about supporting young children and eager to make a difference? Would you like to confidently start a job with a local early childhood center? Ellsworth Adult & Community Education is working with partners to develop an Early Childhoood Education Micro-Credential. This certificate offers the skills, knowledge and experience to start a job in a center!
Our micro-credential is a standards-based credential, so you demonstrate skills and knowledge in a variety of ways, including past learning and experience. You earn three badges that include building a work readiness and communications foundation, early childhood education certificates, and hands-on experience in the classroom.
Badge 1 Communications for the Early Childhood Professional, Work Readiness for the Early Childhood Professional, Pediatric First Aid & CPR, Mandated Reporting and more to prepare for Badge 2. Most of Badge 1 is achieved in-person in classes scheduled at Ellsworth Adult & Community Education.
Badge 2 You’ll earn certificate options documenting your knowledge and skills to work as part of a team to provide professional, safe, healthy, and developmentally appropriate programs in partnership with families. All of these certificates are available self-paced online.
Badge 3 offers hands-on experience demonstrating that you can apply the knowledge and skills in a local facility. These sessions are set up upon completion of Badge 2.
Give us a call to learn more about the micro-credential and the opportunities. The in-person sessions are on Wednesdays during the day.
