Award: Letter of Recognition
Program Description: The Early Childhood Development Letter of Recognition program is designed to provide (in the shortest possible time frame) the knowledge, skills and abilities to be responsible for children in a child care setting. Students who successfully complete the Letter of Recognition program will meet the minimum requirements to work in a child care center and are eligible to continue in the Early Childhood Development Basic and Advanced Certificate programs.
Together, ECD 160 and ECD 163+ meet the 90 hours of approved training for child care preschool teachers required by the Office of Child Care of the Maryland State Department of Education. Students should consult with the Early Childhood Development faculty instructor or an academic advisor in planning an appropriate program.
