Early childhood educators teach in urban and suburban preschools, public and private elementary schools, child development centers, daycare centers and Head Start programs. They also work as educational consultants and home daycare providers.
In the Early Childhood Education program from DePaul University you have the option to pursue an initial Illinois Teaching License (PEL) with an Early Childhood Education (birth-grade 3) endorsement and an Early Childhood Special Education approval. If you are already a licensed teacher, you can add an Early Childhood Education (birth-grade 3) endorsement and Early Childhood Special Education approval to your PEL. You’ll also be qualified for the ECE Gateway credential.
Classes meet on the Lincoln Park Campus, online, or a hybrid of both. The program can be completed in two years.
