Child Development Permit
A Child Development Permit is required to become a teacher in a child care center or preschool in California. There is a career ladder of permits requiring increasing amounts of college level training and increasing days of experience.
Mendocino College provides the 4 core courses (12 units) required by Title 22 and needed for the Associate Teacher Permit. The Mendocino College Child Development Certificate of Achievement meets the requirements for the Teacher Permit.
Additional courses are available to enable teachers to specialize and obtain a Master Teacher Permit. Three supervision courses meet the requirements for Site Supervisor and Program Director. See the college catalog for complete descriptions of courses, degrees, and certificate programs.
Requirements for the Child Development Permit and how to apply are available at the Child Development Training Consortium site. The Consortium will pay the processing fees for some Permit applicants.
