Teaching Degree = ?What?
February 17, 2014
We recently got these questions from a dayhome owner, and as a certified teacher myself, it certainly peaked my interest. After some digging and asking around, I thought I should share the answers with a greater audience.
I have a teaching degree, but I want to open my own dayhome. What certification level do I have? A certified teacher in Alberta qualifies as a Level 3 Early Childhood Educator. You can check any of your qualifications using this handy chart! http://humanservices.alberta.ca/documents/child-care-educational-equivalencies-chart.pdf. As you will notice on this chart, many different degrees and experience translate into either a Level 2 or 3 in terms of Early Childhood Education. For example, a Phys. Ed degree = Level 2.
