Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement (4-5)

On this page:

Why Choose the Early Childhood Generalist 4th-5th Grade Program?

Educators seeking an endorsement in Early Childhood Generalist 4th-5th grade Endorsement must hold or be eligible for an early childhood education license. Educators who do not have a current teaching license because it has expired, must complete the renewal requirements for the ECE license prior to the granting of the endorsement.

Upon successful completion of the Early Childhood Generalist 4th and 5th grade Endorsement program of study and passing licensure exams required by the state of Ohio, the holder of an Ohio Early Childhood teaching credential may add an endorsement in 4th and 5th grades.
