Wisconsin Early Childhood Education License #70-777
Viterbo's Early Childhood Education (ECE) licensure program is designed to meet the needs of teachers in Wisconsin who seek an add-on 70-777 (Birth - Age 8 Regular Education) license which includes the 4K-K levels. This program is especially appropriate for elementary teachers (regular and special education), and interventionists / specialists (RTI) who are or will be serving children in kindergarten or four-year-old-kindergarten . Viterbo's Early Childhood licensure program will also meet the needs of teachers licensed for kindergarten outside of the state of Wisconsin who desire to teach kindergarten in Wisconsin schools. Applications are now being accepted for course cycles starting in fall of 2015 in Green Bay, Madison/Milwaukee and La Crosse. The Early Childhood Education program will offer two courses per semester so students will be able to complete it in as little as 18 months!
Our Early Childhood Education program is designed in a two track system. Students may opt for the 19-credit Early Childhood Education license exclusively or they may complete it and then continue on for an additional 15 credits to earn BOTH a Master of Arts in Education AND an Early Childhood Education license. All Students interested in earning a master's degree would need to apply to the master's in education program upon completion of the Early Childhood Education program.
Students must have an elementary teaching license in regular elementary education, elementary/middle education, early childhood special education, or elementary special education through a regionally accredited institution to be eligible. Please contact the program director for further details. Students must also meet the D.P.I. Conduct and Competency Standards and have an overall undergraduate G.P.A. of 2.75 to be eligible for consideration.
You may apply for a waiver of up to six credits of coursework taken within the past seven years from a regionally accredited institution. The program administrator will assess your transcripts to determine if a waiver will be granted and may request course descriptions and/or course syllabi in order to make a determination.
