Important Note:  Earning the Early Childhood Teacher Credential (ECTC) is not equivalent to earning public school teaching certification and does not qualify you to work in a role where a State Teacher Certification Endorsement is required. Completion of the ECTC validates that you meet the requirements for the role of the teacher in early childhood programs accepting state funds.

Here is the recommended course of study for the Early Childhood Teacher Credential Studies Transfer Degree. If you are studying part-time, simply follow the order of the courses listed here. Note that not all courses will be available every semester. You will notice that in many instances, you will be able to choose the specific course you will take from within a category.
