Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater combines early childhood regular education and early childhood special education into one 4½ year undergraduate program. The program includes six semesters of full time professional education coursework with field placements, which students complete as members of a cohort. This means up to thirty students are admitted to the campus-based model each year to begin training in the spring, and up to twenty are admitted to start in the web-based cohort each summer. The ECE Major is the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's response to today's needs in early childhood education. Two of the most critical needs are knowing how to teach in inclusive settings for all young children and having available a highly trained early childhood workforce.
