Approved Specialized Early Childhood Education Training Program

Approved Specialized Early Childhood Education (Pre-K) Training Program

This training is offered to teachers that need to acquire the twelve hours of approved early childhood coursework by 2018 to teach in Pre-K classrooms. The completion of this training program which includes boot camp participation and two on-line courses will be the equivalent of twelve hours of course work needed for public school or collaborative teachers that teach Pre-K classrooms with a bachelor’s degree lacking the emphasis in early childhood. The  boot camp training will meet the requirements for professional development for school administrators where pre-k classrooms are housed.This program is also available to assistant teachers that need the 12 hour emphasis in early childhood as required by 2018 in the Mississippi Early Learning Guidelines For Classrooms Serving Four-Year-Olds.  Teachers and assistant teachers in classroom serving pre-kindergarten children with special needs are also encouraged to attend. Participants must select one site for the entire training.  Last day to register is June 6, 2017.

Each participants will need bring a laptop or iPad to the training.  Also, in order to complete the course of study, participants will need to purchase 3 jump drives.  

You will be provided approximately an hour to have lunch with your training colleagues on your own.  Information on convenient local eateries will be provided at the training.
