The NLU Certificate of Advanced Study in Early Childhood Administration is designed for those of you who already have a master’s degree in education or who are early childhood professionals, such as preschool owners, Head Start component coordinators and consultants.
Total Credits Required
There are two residency requirements for the program. The first is a three-day residency at the beginning of the program in June. The second is a five-day residency taking place during the following May. Both are held at one of NLU's Chicago-area campuses.
Early Childhood Administration is taught using a cohort model, which means you will go through the program with the same group of 12-20 students. NLU graduates like the cohort model because of the support and friendships provided by their fellow students throughout the program. Students are required to attend three residencies lasting four days each at the beginning, middle, and end of the program.
