The School-Age Certificate provides a strong foundation for early childhood professionals working with school-age children through six courses. The School-Age Certificate enables the student to receive two state credentials.
Upon successful completion of EDU-119, the student earns the North Carolina Early Childhood Credential and qualifies to be the lead teacher in a child care center. By successfully completing EDU-145 and either EDU-235 or EDU-263, the student receives the North Carolina School-Age Credential.
Additionally, all courses with EDU prefixes are used to evaluate the educational level of each child care provider by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education.
