Infant/Toddler Care Certificate

Curriculum EDU.ITC.CERT (C420B)

The Infant/Toddler certificate program is designed for students wishing to prepare for entry-level positions in infant-care centers. The program’s emphasis is on infant/toddler development and creating appropriate environments and programs. A supervised, practical experience in an infant center will be an important component of the program.

Field experiences are requirements in all ECE classes, progressing from basic observations to a supervised observation/participation class, in program-approved and licensed Early Childhood programs. Experiences include working with children and families, curriculum development, team-teaching responsibilities, classroom management and guidance techniques.

The Triton College Infant/Toddler Care Certificate leads to a level 4 Gateways Illinois Infant/Toddler Credential upon completion of the following courses and an associate in applied science degree in Early Childhood Education.
