Early Childhood Education Director Concentration
About the Early Childhood Education Director Concentration
This program offers excellent preparation for a career in any child-care profession through a program with a broad base of theoretical and practical knowledge. Courses in this program follow the development of the child from birth through the preschool years. The intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of the child is explored, as are the needs experienced by children as they progress through these ages.
Fisher Colleges Early Education and Care Program is designed to meet certification for early childhood education (birth -5) in all 50 states, but is not a public school licensure program. Fisher College has not made a determination whether this program meets Pre K - 12th grade licensure. Students seeking professional licensure should contact the appropriate Department of Education licensing board in that state to verify licensure requirements.
Students who have earned a Child Development Associate (CDA) credential may be eligible to be awarded up to 7 credits through Prior Learning Assessment.
*Based on continuous enrollment of two courses every term. Time to completion may be shorter based on eligible transfer credit or longer if course enrollment varies.
