Early Childhood Coaching Certificate
The Early Childhood Coaching Certificate is offered in collaboration with the Colorado Coaching Consortium. Designed around the Colorado Coaching Competencies, this 9-credit, 3-course series strengthens and enhances the early childhood professional's coaching practices through foundational coaching skills, practical hands-on experiences, peer networking, reflection, and self awareness. More information about the Colorado Coaching Consortium and the Colorado Coaching Competencies can be found here.
In order to construct a more complete foundation in, and understanding of, the process of best practice' coaching, it is suggested, though not required, that these courses be taken in sequence. ECED 5410 can be applied as an elective course to the Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. Experienced coaches can petition to apply ECED 5420 or ECED 5430 as the elective course.
All courses are three graduate credit hours and are offered in person. Tuition for each course is significantly reduced to $250/credit for a total of $750/course and $2250 for the certificate.
