Program Description

The Early Childhood Care and Education Basic certificate includes three basic early childhood and care education courses that are needed for entry level workers. The program provides an introductory course to the ECCE field, a child growth and development course, and health, safety, and nutrition course. Graduates have qualifications to be employed in early care and education settings including child care centers, Head Start, and Georgia Pre-K programs. Bright from the Start (BFTS), the regulatory agency in Georgia, requires the basic knowledge included in this TCC for a person employed in a child care center and family day care center. This certificate does not qualify for financial aid as it does not meet minimum hour requirements. (Program Length: 1 Semester Minimum)

Students applying for this program must be accepted into the Early Childhood degree or diploma program.
