Child Development Permits

California has a Child Development Permit structure with multiple levels, each authorizing different career levels in the care and education of young children.  Each permit level has separate requirements and options to meet the requirements.  Whether you want to be an assistant, associate teacher, teacher, master teacher, site supervisor, or program Director, Vanguard has the early education classes you need to complete your education and apply for a permit.  An entry level assistant permit requires only two early childhood classes which can be completed in two months.

Get started today and begin working in the field while you complete your additional education and work toward a fulfilling career in the field of Early Childhood Education.

Note: Vanguard provides the early childhood classes required by State of California (CA) Commission on Teaching Credentialing (CTC). In order to apply and receive a child development permit, you must apply through CA CTC. To ensure your classes will meet state requirements, we always recommend you check with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
