5. An Early Childhood Practicum or Student Teaching Course within the last 3 years

An Early Childhood Practicum or Student Teaching Course completed from an accredited university will count as a demonstrated competency. Please submit a copy of university transcripts showing that the following:

  • An Early Childhood Practicum or Student Teaching Course listed
  • A grade of "C" or better was earned
  • The course was completed within the past three years
