Important Notice

As required in the 2017-18 state budget, conversion of current Professional and Master Educator licenses to Lifetime licenses is complete.  If you wish to print a copy of your Lifetime license, please follow the four numbered steps below:

  1. Access your ELO Account
  2. Navigate to the “Manage Your Existing Licenses” section of the Quick Start Menu
  3. Choose “Print license certificate” from the drop down menu and click “Go!”
  4. Based on your browser’s default behavior, a file will be available for you to open or download.
 

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families is responsible for licensing day cares and day care staff. Please see https://dcf.wisconsin.gov/cclicensing for more information. The one exception is for 4K teachers who are teaching at a community-based 4K program in partnership with a public school district. These teachers must hold an Early Childhood or PK teacher license.
