Early Childhood Educational Administration Certificate (ECEA)
Offered only at the Northern California Campus.
The Early Childhood Educational Administration Certificate program provides students with the opportunity to focus 19 hours of academic study in early childhood education and administration in order to establish church preschools that meet not only the child care needs of a community, but also reach families for Christ through the local church. The courses are designed to comply with California state course requirements for preschool teachers and directors.
Students must complete the Seminary's entry requirements as a regular or special student. This certificate may be earned in addition to other degree plans or as a skill set without degree.
The program is designed for teachers and directors of church weekday preschool programs, directors of church day care, and ministers to preschoolers.
