  • The Early Childhood Teacher Credential (ECTC) is a competency-based credential awarded by the State Department of Education to individuals at the Associate and Bachelor's degree level. Individuals can apply for an Infant/Toddler ECTC, a Preschool ECTC or both. The purpose of the ECTC is to provide teachers with a pathway to demonstrate their expertise through The Individual Review Route. Research demonstrates that qualified staff with specific training in early childhood makes a difference for children, families, and program quality. Through the ECTC individual review route, CT is able to ensure that our colleges are providing students with experiences that build expertise in alignment with standards and that they receive specific training in early childhood, not just a degree.
    This is only available to people who have an Associate or a Bachelor's degree. If you do not have a degree you are not eligible for this program.
