This CDFS certificate incorporates the West Virginia Core Knowledge and Core Competencies and the West Virginia Early Standards Framework: Infant/Toddler in order to include the most recent requirements set forth by West Virginia agencies responsible for overseeing teachers and providers working with children from birth through three years of age. The specific body of knowledge in the Infant/Toddler Certificate satisfies new state and federal mandates that teachers of very young children must have formal recognition of their training in order to obtain and/or maintain employment.

There are 19 hours in the Infant/Toddler Certificate program. The certificate can be completed alone or within a degree program.
