A strong foundation is vital to success.
Research supports the fact that accountability, as well as the road to college, career, and military readiness, does not begin in grade three or beyond; it actually begins in early childhood. A strong foundation in early childhood development and instructional best practices ensures that your youngest students are kindergarten-ready and well equipped for future learning.
The Early Childhood Team is here to help you establish or enhance your early childhood programs to fully meet the hallmarks of high-quality instruction aligned to the Pre-K Guidelines with vertical alignment to the Third Grade TEKS. The vital skills necessary for lifelong success are built in the early years, and with purposeful, planned, and playful early childhood programs, you will have the roadmap to begin the journey toward student success.
Early Childhood Package members have ongoing support from the Region 10 team of early education experts. We’re also ready to foster collaboration with an extensive network of early childhood professionals. We are pleased to offer research-based professional development, ongoing comprehensive support, and opportunities for networking and expansion of your early childhood community. Through this package, our early childhood team serves as a liaison between our Region 10 LEAs and the Texas Education Agency team. We seek input and guidance regarding the latest provisions and requirements from the agency related to high-quality early childhood education. Additionally, our team can help analyze your data and customize specific supports to meet your individual needs. Together, we will partner with you and your teachers to meet all the needs of your youngest learners.
The foundation built in early childhood supports all the learning yet to come. Let our team of experts help ensure your foundation is strong enough to hold up all the years that are built upon it.
