Early Childhood Education Micro-Credential Info Session

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.
