The course work in the ARC Early Childhood Education department is approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing as meeting the requirements for the California Child Development Educational Permits. Students who complete selected certificates in the ECE program, along with required experience, are recommended by the American River College faculty to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for direct issuance of Child Development Permits.

All students enrolled in coursework that requires lab work at our campus Child Development Center or at an off-campus facility, must show proof of TB Clearance (done within the previous 6 months), and documentation of all required immunizations.
