Family and Consumer Sciences

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources

The Early Childhood Program Director Certificate is designed to:

  • Fit Wyoming's Professional Career Development Competency Wheel and the Professional Development Career Lattice.

  • Fit the National Association for the Education of Young Children's Guidelines for the Preparation of Early Childhood Professionals.

  • Allow a variety of paths to certification.

  • Be done as a stand-alone certificate, simultaneously with the distance Child Development option of the Bachelor's degree in Family and Consumer Sciences or the on campus Human Development and Family Sciences degree option, or to complement other related degree programs.

Courses not only satisfy certification requirements for many states but also meet many of the requirements of a bachelor's degree in family and consumer sciences. Additionally they fit professional development for home providers and daycare professionals. Students who feel that they have met competencies or specific courses through methods other than coursework completion must contact the Office of Academic Affairs after acceptance into the program and pay $80 per course/competency for prior learning assessment (portfolio) review.
