The Early Childhood Administrative Credential Certificate is comprised of six courses (18 credits) that address the many roles of program administrators and directors in early childhood settings. Students gain more knowledge in areas such as staffing, budget development, facilities management, determining community needs, understanding laws and regulations as well as best practices and performance standards.
The coursework is designed for current administrators, supervisors and child care teachers from early childhood settings who want to develop a stronger knowledge base of the administrative role. Upon completion, students may also apply to the Registry for the Wisconsin Professional Credential for Child Care Administrators.
Scholarships may be available for students who are employed in a licensed or exempt early childhood center or a licensed or certified family child care program. Applicants must have the support of their employer and possess a high school diploma or GED. Scholarships for the Early Childhood Administrative Credential Certificate are available through the Wisconsin Early Childhood Association.
