How to Use: Leaders are encouraged to use the Self-Assessment as a catalyst for conversation and prioritization. Individuals should complete the assessment on their own first. Then, in small groups, leaders can facilitate dialogue about perceived strengths, opportunities for growth, and surprising insights. Teams are encouraged to identify the top three areas that would lead to better program outcomes. These priorities should guide program improvement and professional development plans in the coming year.
We invite you to connect with a Start Early expert to discuss the results of your self-assessment and discuss the professional learning needs of your team. You can also explore the Essential Practices of Educare, a flexible series of online training sessions that covers four core outcomes-driven practices – including high-quality teaching.
