The Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Diversity in Early Childhood Education seeks to prepare educators to understand and address the role that diversity—cultural, socioeconomic, and otherwise—plays in child development and learning. Educators examine the types and stages of early childhood development with a focus on the role of cultural and linguistic diversity; essential components of effective early childhood programs; and the impact of access, equity, and social justice on child development and early childhood programming. Educators also study approaches to meeting the needs of English language learners, children on the autism spectrum, and children with developmental delays. Coursework explores practical strategies for planning curricula, teaching and assessing young children, and referring children to appropriate resources. Learners can apply the credits they earn in this certificate program toward Walden’s M.S. in Early Childhood Studies with a specialization in Teaching and Diversity in Early Childhood Education.
