Badging Certificate Program

A digital badge is recognition for learning outside of the typical classroom environment. It is verified by an external entity and is skills and experience based. It incentivizes learning, measures growth, and creates pathways to careers (Reelworks, 2020). Digital badges represent achievements that can increase your employability by demonstrating the application of skills and knowledge in that area and can be shared widely on platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, via email, or embedded in a website.

Earners of a digital badge will complete professional development led by Educare, a leader in high-quality early childhood education. During this practical instruction, earners will learn how to improve program practice and deliver stronger outcomes for children and families. They will develop the knowledge, behavior, and practices to meet the increasingly rigorous quality standards in early education.

Badges can be earned by completing any of the Essential Practices of Educare.
