CHILD DEVELOPMENT PERMIT
Cañada College's Early Childhood Education Certificate Program is aligned with the Child Development Permit regulations. The Permit has been approved by the California Department of Education and the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for child care and development centers operating under Title 5 (publicly subsidized).
The Child Development Permit emphasizes professional development and will eventually impact the entire Early Childhood Education field. The career lattice approach acknowledges the importance of many entry points into the profession. The Child Development Permit has taken the place of the Emergency Children's Center Instructional Permit, the Children's Center Supervision Permit, and the Life Children's Center Supervision Permit.
AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION WITHIN THE EDUCATION AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM APPLICABLE TO THE MASTER TEACHER PERMIT
In accordance with the guidelines established by the Child Development Permit for the Master Teacher, Cañada College's Education and Human Development Program has created several "specializations." "Administration" is not considered a specialization. Six semester units in specific areas define a specialization. These focus areas can be useful to students when seeking work advancement or career development options.
