Child Development Teacher Permit Certificate

Non-Degree Pathway

For those interested in teaching infants through preschool age children, we are pleased to offer a non-degree pathway. This pathway will deliver the required child development courses to earn a California Child Development Teacher's Permit. A reduced tuition rate has been developed for partnerships with school districts, Head Start agencies and private schools.

These courses meet the Early Childhood Education unit requirement for the Child Development Teacher Permit from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). Upon completion of the CTC requirements, students will receive assistance in applying for their Child Development Teacher Permit through CTC.
