Parent & Family Education License
Online professional program
The online 27-credit parent and family education license program will prepare you to teach parent and family education in Minnesota's statewide Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program, and supports respectful, reciprocal interactions between parents and their children. Learn more about the ECFE program in Minnesota.
Many students choose to pursue the license as part of the M.Ed. program with the license sub-plan (31 credits).
This program will develop your skills to plan, coordinate, and teach in an instructional program that addresses the intellectual, emotional, cultural, social, and physical needs of both parents and children. The Parent and Family Educator License is also a high quality credential for those who reside in Minnesota and want to pursue opportunities outside the ECFE setting.
