Early Childhood Education

Early childhood ministry is the fastest-growing area of ministry in the WELS. MLC's Continuing Education courses in ECE help early childhood teachers to meet the developmental needs of very young children. Our offerings in ECE fall into three strands. In many cases, courses are found in each curricular strand, allowing the teacher to fulfill requirements in one or more strands at the same time.
