Child Development Permits are credentials awarded by the State of California.
Employers may require their employees to have permits, or may find employees with
permits highly desirable.
Permits are available at various levels. Each level has one or more ways to qualify. Individuals must meet all of the requirements listed in one of the available options. Individuals should review all available options and complete the one that best reflects their own education and/or experience.
Students can contact Nicole Kerbey, our CA Child Development Permit Advisor

the phone, or appointments can be made to see her in person. Email her today!
