Educating and caring for children is the most important work anyone can do to prepare them as future leaders. Quality child care takes educated, caring professionals to provide that care and education. It is up to us to make sure that every child has the opportunity to develop to their full potential. If you are asking any of the following questions, then the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Online Childcare Credential Program is for you. How can I become a childcare teacher? How can I become an infant-toddler or preschool teacher? How to open a childcare program? How can I help change the world? Join the UW-Platteville childcare education program featuring award-winning, accredited, 10-week courses and learn to help change the world, one child at a time.

You can also review the child care and education brochures for Wisconsin, New York, and California for details specific to those locations.
