The Preschool Post
The Preschool Post is an e-newsletter that will be sent out bimonthly during the school year (August-May). It is a collaborative effort between the NDE Office of Early Childhood and Office of Special Education, developed to provide educators and administrators with helpful updates, information and technical assistance to continue high-quality early education in Nebraska.
The Nebraska Department of Education, Office of Early Childhood is recruiting individuals to join a cadre of Step Up to Quality coaches. Coaching is an interactive process based on a collaborative relationship. It is intentionally designed to promote sustainable growth in the attitudes, skills and knowledge to effectively implement best practices for the optimal development of young children and their families. Through observation, discussion, and reflection the coach promotes the other person’s ability to grow toward identified goals. EC Coaches collaborate with administrators, staff, family members, and caregivers who intervene directly with children in group care, early education, and/or home settings.
