NWTC Early Childhood Education

NWTC Early Childhood Education The Early Childhood Education program prepares students to work as teacher-caregivers in early childhood settings. It combines student teaching with related academic work at the college or online.
(3)

The Early Childhood Education program prepares students for a professional career in early childhood education, including preschool, childcare, and exceptional education settings serving children from birth to age eight. It is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary in the field of child development and early education and care. Students learn, first hand, about the childcare community and the roles and responsibilities of the Early Childhood Teacher within the classroom. The applied skill development afforded with the Practicum (student teaching) placement provides the student with an intensive and meaningful learning experience, through authentic interactions with children and childcare professionals.

Dear white friends—I need you to love my sons as they grow into black men

It seems very appropriate to share this article after the extremely violence being played out in Minneapolis. Remember, every human is somebody's son or daughter, mom or dad, auntie or uncle, brother or sisters. I know moms that are scared every day for their sons. Please read. We need to make this world a better place!

"I love you for loving my boys, I do. But I need you to love them enough to demand change so parents that look like me aren't afraid our children aren't going to make it home."

Now Accepting Applications for Child Care Counts: COVID-19 Emergency Payment Program

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) has been approved to use $51 million to support Wisconsin’s early care and education community. The funding comes as part of the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

Child care providers are vital contributors to reopening Wisconsin’s economy. In order to ensure parents are able to return to work, Wisconsin needs child care programs to safely remain open or reopen, be staffed, and able to care for children, ages 0-13.

DCF is supporting the growing demand for child care access by supporting payment programs for open or temporarily closed child care programs during March 12 – May 25, 2020. There are three payment programs and three application periods as detailed below. Read more about the Child Care Counts: COVID-19 Emergency Payment Program and apply on the department’s website.

Child Care Counts: COVID-19 Emergency Payment Programs

* Program 1: Funding to Care for Essential Workforce Families
* Program 2: Incentive Pay
* Program 3: Support for Temporarily Closed Child Care Programs

Application Periods/Timelines

* For Period 1 (March 12 - April 11, 2020)
* Applications open on May 18 and close on May 29, 2020
* Payment letters will be issued by June 8, 2020

* For Period 2 (April 12 - May 11, 2020)
* Applications open on June 8 and close on June 19, 2020
* Payment letters will be issued by June 29, 2020

* For Period 3 (May 12 – May 25, 2020, 2-week period)
* Applications open on June 29 and close on July 10, 2020
* Payment letters will be issued by July 20, 2020

Thank you for all you do for the children and families of Wisconsin.
