​​​​​Early Childhood Licensure ​

Findlay student plays game with elementary school aged childAdd an early childhood license to your degree

An early childhood license in Ohio allows you to teach children age 3 through grade 3.

If you already hold a bachelors degree from a nationally accredited institution then you may qualify for our post-baccalaureate licensure program.  

Our post-baccalaureate early childhood licensure consists of:

  • Completion of Ohio Department of Education approved licensure curriculum (individual curricula dependent upon approved transferrable coursework)

  • 3 level assessments (linked to coursework)

  • The following state required tests:  Assessment of Professional Knowledge: Early Childhood (#001), Early Childhood Education (#012), OAE Early Childhood Special Ed (Pre-Kindergarten Special Endorsement) (#013)

Students must maintain a 3.00 GPA and pass all three level assessments and state required tests to earn a Letter of Program Completion.

Diversify yourself even more by adding:

  • Three additional education courses and passing two OAE subtests to earn your Grade 4 and 5 Endorsement

  • Four graduate education courses to earn your Master of Arts in Education
