Family and Consumer Sciences: Certification

Early Childhood Program Director's Certificate

The Early Childhood Program Director's Certificate is available to early childhood professionals in the state as well as to students. The certificate program 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,
  • complement the definition of Quality Child Care developed by the Wyoming Governor's Council on Early Childhood Development, and
  • allow a variety of paths to certification


Not only do these courses satisfy certification requirements for director of early childhood programs for many states but they also meet many of the requirements of a bachelor's degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. In addition, they also provide professional development for home providers and daycare professionals.

Those who would benefit from these courses include: Head Start teachers and directors; home providers; Department of Family Services, Adoption, and Social Service workers; public health nurses; school nurses; directors of school-age child care programs; preschool program teachers, and public school teachers.
