Child Development Supervisor (formerly Level Three)
You will receive a Child Development Supervisor (formerly Level Three) certificate when you have:
- Completed a two-year early learning and child care diploma program offered by an Alberta public college, or an equivalent level of training (refer to the Educational Equivalencies Chart or the Certification Guide); and
- Obtained proof of language proficiency at Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Level 7, if your post-secondary training was not completed in English or French. Information about language proficiency requirements is available on page 19 of the Certification Guide.
To receive Child Development Supervisor certification, submit:
- a completed Certification Application; and
- an original CELPIP General or IELTS General assessment at CLB Level 7 in all areas; and
- original and official transcripts sent directly from your educational institution to the Certification office showing all coursework and completion of any early learning and child care diploma or degree program or approved educational equivalencies (consult the Certification Guide). If your transcripts do not indicate completion of your credential, please attach an original parchment to confirm that the credential was granted.
We do not accept photocopies or faxed copies of transcripts for Child Development Worker or Child Development Supervisor certification. You must have your educational institution send original transcripts directly to the Child Care Staff Certification Office.
