Early Edge California
Last Saturday, Early Edge hosted our second advisory committee of Early Learning teachers in the Bay Area. Teachers from Head Start programs, private centers, family childcare homes, and Transitional Kindergarten offered their feedback on the Governor’s proposed budget, the AB 212 stipend program, and Early Edge’s initiatives to increase and improve dual language early education in California.
We were joined by our partners at the UC Berkeley Center for the Study of Childcare Employment, who presented their work and solicited feedback on a new survey they are developing to better understand the issues facing Early Learning teachers in California.
Early Edge is committed to regularly hosting advisory committees across the state in order to hear from Early Learning teachers in the field. If you’re interested in participating in one of our regional advisory committee meetings, please contact Stephanie Wayland at [email protected]. We’d like to hear from:
- Family child care providers
- Head Start or Early Head Start teachers
- Private center teachers
- California State Preschool Program teachers
- TK paraeducators and TK teachers
