HiMama Academy is an on-demand training and professional development resource for early childhood educators. It was designed and developed by educators to develop, support, and retain staff in a changing world.
As an IACET-certified resource, educators are able to earn ‘Continuing Education Units’, meaning that our content and learning framework has been certified at the highest standard. All course content is heavily researched and developed by accredited authors.
Since our classes offer IACET-certified CEUs it is generally accepted by license inspectors to meet the requirements for annual in-service training. It is however up to the individual center to work with their local representatives to ensure that guidelines are followed and that hours and certifications are submitted.
While anyone can sign up to take our online classes to earn CEUs, if you are trying to meet the professional development requirements of your state or province, please refer to our regional guide below.
