Early Educator Central, a free, new website, provides infant-toddler educators, administrators, trainers, coaches, and professional development system leaders, access to a one-stop online resource for early education professionals to leverage high quality, open-source materials to develop a highly-qualified workforce.
A continuously enhanced index of coursework, information on career pathways and teaching and system supports was developed by federal partners to aid educators and support staff in their day-to-day responsibilities and achievement of long-term goals.
“We are honored to have been involved as an expert panel member during the development of Early Educator Central,” remarked Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good®, a division of CCA Global Partners and the creators / managers of the ECE Shared Resources™ platform. “We know continuous education is essential to increasing the quality of care provided to children. Early Educator Central is a remarkable support for teachers, early childhood education directors and coaches as they work to achieve their education goals.”
“If you are part of the infant-toddler workforce, Early Educator Central can help build the impact you have by strengthening the work you do every day,” started Harriet Dichter, Project Director for Early Educator Central. “Remember to check back often – we’re constantly adding new and valuable tools.”
Early Educator Central is jointly administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care, and Office of Head Start. Visit EarlyEducatorCentral.acf.hhs.gov to explore the resources and to learn more.
