What are preschool children supposed to do? Whether you have been the administrator in charge of a preschool program for just a few years, many years, or if this is your first year, you have probably asked yourself that very question. Is this just a younger kindergarten class? When do they teach letters and numbers? Where are the worksheets? Are they playing all day? Why is it so noisy?
This one-hour webinar will help you begin to answer those questions. Participants who join us will learn
- essential components of a high-quality preschool program,
- research-based widely held expectations and developmentally appropriate practices for preschool children, and
- best practices to help teachers with their own professional learning journeys as relates to high-quality preschool.
Like the programs themselves, the leadership needs of preschools share many similarities with those of schools for older students, but they also encompass some meaningful differences. Join us for this five-part webinar series, in which we will explore a variety of powerful, practical strategies to help you make your preschool program leadership both a visible presence and a trusted voice for your community of learners.
