With a preschool credential you can start applying child development theory to your practice as a professional child care provider.

You will learn techniques to observe, record, and assess growth and development in children while implementing a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

Courses focus on how to incorporate developmentally appropriate guidance strategies, while providing a respectful, diverse, and inclusive program.
