Parent and Family Education License
Online professional program
The online 25-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 complete licensure requirements as part of the M.Ed. program with the license sub-plan (30 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 Education License is also a high quality credential for those who reside in Minnesota and want to pursue opportunities outside the ECFE setting.
I think a huge strength of this program is the ability to build community among the students. While I have met very few people in person, I feel like I really know many of my peers through our interaction.
ECFE was an enormously positive and important part of my own transition into parenthood and I am thankful to be able to provide this same support for other families in my current and future work.
