Is your career goal to teach kindergarten through 3rd grade? Pursuing a Utah K-3 Early Childhood Education license focuses your preparation in early childhood teaching philosophy and methods for children 0-8 years.
- The K-3 ECE educator license is only available from a university-based education preparation program. WSU is one of the four Utah institutions offering the ECE degree (the other three are BYU, U of U, and USU).
- WSU is the only higher education program in Utah accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
- WSU and CHF Department have multiple scholarship opportunities including the Lehner EC Endowment dedicated to ECE majors. You can also apply for employer-supported scholarships through the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Utah program and the Department of Workforce.
