The recent passage of the American Rescue Plan provides a critical opportunity for the country to expand and deepen our focus on early childhood professionals and invest in sustainable ways to support their well-being.
Join this 1-hour webinar – How to Cultivate Teacher Well-Being and Improve Child Outcomes in Turbulent Times – to learn from and with early childhood leaders across the country. In the context of the federal stimulus and the ongoing path to recovery from the pandemic, we will discuss the following questions:
- How can we best support educators and professionals who are critical to achieving positive child and family outcomes?
- How can we improve professional well-being, retention, morale and effectiveness amidst burnout, fatigue and discrimination?
The discussion will feature research and evidence underlying the Start Early Essentials framework and measurement tool. Participants will also learn about our suite of professional development resources that leaders can implement at scale to invest in professional well-being for their staff and improve child and family outcomes in their programs.
Hear from state and local system leaders who are investing in and supporting professionals using evidence-based, sustainable professional development strategies in partnership with the Start Early team. Panelists represent communities across the country and professionals in various settings – child care, Head Start, Early Head Start, and school-based preschool.
