Licensing Opportunities in Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education
This summer, the Vermont Higher Education Collaborative (VT-HEC) will launch its newly approved Early Childhood Educator (ECE) initial licensure program. This graduate-level program is designed for professionals working in early childhood or a related field who wish to obtain a Vermont educator license with an endorsement in ECE (birth–3rd grade). In launching this new ECE initial licensure program, VT-HEC seeks to respond to the ever-increasing need in Vermont and across the nation for qualified early childhood educators.
For nearly 20 years, the VT-HEC ECE program has provided courses aligned with Vermont’s ECE competencies and Core Teaching Standards. However, until this new program, students in the VT-HEC ECE program without an initial license still had to apply through Peer Review for their ECE initial license. This new initial licensure program provides students with a different option to obtain their initial license through VT-HEC.
