T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Scholarship Road Show — Appleton

With so many changes to T.E.A.C.H. and REWARD recently, and enough resources to serve more people, we’re taking our outreach “on the road.”  If you know of programs in your area who aren’t engaged in T.E.A.C.H., let them know we’re coming to you to talk about our programs in a light-hearted way…we’ll even provide appetizers and a few prizes! 

While working with young children, you influence the future. Let us help you further your own education so you can give them your best. T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Wisconsin provides higher education scholarships to professionals who work in regulated early childhood and school age care settings. Since its inception in 1999, T.E.A.CH. has provided more than 7,000 scholarships to over 4,000 early childhood teachers to attend credit-based courses.

Wisconsin Pyramid Model

State approved Pyramid Model training content that addresses the theory and evidence based practices to enhance the social and emotional competence of children ages birth through 6. The content aligns with the Pyramid Model framework- a multi-leveled system of support to address child development in critical areas important to school readiness- including social and emotional development. Children who enter school with social and emotional competence demonstrate higher academic achievement. The training provides many examples and concrete strategies for how to use recommended practices daily with young children and their families.
