Pre-K Resources & Professional Development
BLUEPRINT FOR EARLY LEARNING
Resources to Build Teacher Capacity
Children look to their teacher, as a model, a guide, and an encourager. Research on the significance of adult-child interactions in early childhood development has shown that relationships matter.
Warm, supportive relationships encourage children’s motivation, engagement, self-direction, cooperation, and positive attitudes toward school.
Our new Blueprint follows a clear scope and sequence organized into ten highly engaging thematic units that lead to purposeful and authentic learning. We also provide a robust collection of resources to guide teachers through each unit. Here are some examples of the teacher supports we provide in each unit.
