The Parent Education Teacher Licensure Program qualifies professionals to teach parent education in Minnesota’s statewide ECFE program. A parent educator plans, coordinates, and teaches in an instructional program that addresses the intellectual, emotional, cultural, social, and physical needs of both parents and children. Parent education seeks to support respectful, reciprocal interactions between parents and their children.

The parent educator license also serves as a high-quality credential for those who reside in Minnesota and wish to work outside the EFCE setting. Students may include license credits toward the M.Ed. in Family Education.

Professional Licensing Boards

Requirements for licensure vary from state to state. Check with the appropriate licensing body in the state where you intend to practice.
