The Child Care and Development Certificate offers advanced course work for those seeking employment within a childcare center or as a licensed in-home childcare provider. Course work will meet competency requirements for the CDA certificate. Course work provides opportunities for continuing education credit needed to maintain current employment. All course work from the Child Care Certificate transitions into the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Child Care & Development for those seeking further advancement within the field.
Note: This degree program will not prepare you for teacher licensure for teaching in a public or accredited private school as required by the Kansas State Department of Education. Refer to Associate of Arts in Elementary/Early Childhood for more information on the teaching pathway.
