An Early Childhood Education Certificate will be granted upon completion of the required number of units of coursework. A grade of C or better is required in all of the courses used to satisfy the requirements for the certificate. ECE 670: Cooperative Education in ECE is strongly recommended for those students planning to work in early childhood settings. Completion of the certificate requirements qualifies students as teachers in child care and development programs operating under Title 22, (non-state-funded programs) and/or for an Assistant or Associate Teacher Permit issued by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. This permit is required of all assistant and associate teachers working in child care and development programs operating under Title 5, (state funded programs). A minimum of 50% of the ECE units must be taken at Skyline College in order to receive the ECE Certificate from Skyline.
