Striving to elevate the field of Early Childhood Care and Education

Wearing a blue v-neck blouse with her long, dark hair parted and draped over the front of her left shoulder, Marilys Galindo is pictured in front of a bright, stucco wall with flowering vines trained to provide a colorful but undistracting backdrop to her warm smile.

“The early childhood workforce is overworked, underpaid, undereducated and undervalued. The Institute strives to elevate the field of Early Childhood, so it is regarded as a profession.”

The Institute’s micro-credentials programs and services prioritize access and equity in many ways. Scholarships offer professional development and books at no cost. Online and evening courses remove the cost of transportation and allow students to work during the day. Laptops are provided to students who need need one and the Institute prints course documents and handouts for students without printer access. Resources shared in courses are available for free and accessible for all students.

Set against the colorful backdrop of what may be a classroom wall with books, toys, and student work, a young child seated in a high chair with hair face obscured by a giant purple toy camera.
