This online program will develop your skills to design, deliver, and evaluate family-focused programs for adult learners in Minnesota’s Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program. This program track leads directly to Minnesota teacher licensure in parent and family education.
In this program you will:
- Develop a strengths-based approach to family education that will prepare you to support, educate and build community for parents and families navigating today’s changing world.
- Meet State of Minnesota requirements to obtain a parent and family education license to teach in an ECFE program as your first teaching license, or in addition to another teaching license you may already have acquired.
- Prepare to conduct home visits, lead classes for parents of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, provide outreach services, and work with diverse and multilingual families.
The program provides rigorous professional teacher preparation in accordance with Standards of Effective Practice for Teachers (SEP) and content standards adopted by the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB). Learn more about the licensure process.
