Child Development Permits

School of Education

Overview

The early childhood education program at Biola’s School of Education offers state-approved coursework required for five of California’s Child Development Permits. After completing the early childhood coursework, you will be better prepared to teach more effectively in public and private programs serving infants through grade three. Course selection depends on what level of permit you desire.

What Will I Study?

While completing early childhood coursework, students will engage in fieldwork assignments that provide them with hands-on experience in local infant, toddler and elementary-age educational settings. The School of Education partners with local schools to facilitate this fieldwork, with the aim of advancing your ability to work with young children.

During your time at Biola University, you can:

  • Complete permit coursework fully online
  • Add the School-Age Emphasis Authorization to permits, allowing you to provide services in the care, development and instruction of children in before-school, after-school and other school-age child care programs
