Professional Learning

Pre-K 4 SA understands that you want professional learning that helps you make a powerful impact on children’s lives.

That’s why we design every workshop, seminar and coaching session to produce the maximum takeaway and beneficial “Aha!” moments specifically for early childhood educators.

The Professional Learning Department at Pre-K 4 SA consists of 16 learning specialists dedicated to mentoring and educating early childhood education teachers, leaders, coaches and specialists.

Our purpose is to increase the number of highly skilled infant through 3rd grade educators in San Antonio, improving teacher credentialing, serving as the pipeline for ECE leadership and increasing the number of accredited ECE Centers in the city.
