Make a difference, from the start
Early childhood is a critical age. It’s a time when children are so full of wonder, and it’s the time to lay the groundwork for their entire educational experience. The Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education program of Concordia University Wisconsin will prepare you to be an early childhood educator, and get you ready to work with children from birth through grade three.
Using a Christian emphasis, this program offers a Lutheran Teacher Diploma track if you’d like to pursue education as an LCMS church work professional. It also has a Christian Teacher Certification track if you’d rather pursue education in another Christian school setting. All tracks lead to Wisconsin state licensure, which lets you serve in both Christian or public schools from elementary schools pre-K to 3rd grade, profit and nonprofit centers, Head Start programs, family childcare centers, after school programs, and outdoor settings such as camps or nature preschools. The program has a strong liberal arts foundation, meaning you’ll get a well-rounded education. Our Early Childhood program is accredited and approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
What to expect
Programmatic focus areas include whole child development, creative and integrated play-based learning, and developmentally appropriate practice. You’ll start with specific education coursework, but you’ll also receive practical field experience beginning freshman year. The program will help you master content knowledge as well as a wide range of instructional strategies, and will help you develop skills you’ll find valuable as an educator - from managing your classroom and designing curricula to engaging with families and communities.
