Teachers &

Teachers and caregivers work directly with young children and families to promote children's progress toward school readiness goals.

Teachers and caregivers provide support for children's growth, development, and learning within the context of close and nurturing relationships with adults and peers. Responsive caregiving, effective teaching practices, planned opportunities, and information from ongoing assessment promote learning and development within a well-designed environment that meets the needs of each child.
