Prior to Field Experiences, participants must view the video located at www.viterbo.edu/iece.  Click on Program Requirements. Submit verification form (located on the same website) to field experience advisor.

Field experience sites can be either public or private schools or licensed daycare settings.  Students who enroll in the field experience placement courses must do the following:

  • Locate an appropriate site with a licensed ECE teacher who is currently working with pre-school or kindergarten students whose age matches the placement that you are seeking.
  • After locating a site for the field experience, each student must complete the Early Childhood Field Experience Application.
  • Submit the application to your field experience advisor for approval prior to logging your hours.
  • For each of the field experiences, log a minimum of 25 hours in the setting. Students are encouraged to gradually assume responsibility in the classroom, and to make the experience as hands-on as possible. Things to include in your experience are observing, tutoring, prep work, lesson planning, and instructing. The minimum expectation is that you will independently prepare and teach one lesson prior to the end of the experience.
  • Return field experience log sheets to field experience advisor as soon as the required hours are completed.
