What Makes Our Continuing Education Different?
Reason #1: We specialize in early childhood education.
Many continuing education opportunities cover a wide range of topics serving a multitude of grade levels which can be less influential for early childhood educators. Pre-K 4 SA is a treasure trove of ECE knowledge, information and inspiration with every workshop, seminar and training session specifically designed for empowering Early Childhood Educators.
All of our Professional Learning opportunities are led by experts in early childhood education and are aligned to national standards. We follow the HighScope teaching methods in Pre-K 4 SA classrooms; an approach backed by more than 40 years of research. Educators can leverage our educational success which has been featured in over 30 local, regional, national and international outlets, including Politico, CNN, The New York Times and Huffington Post.
The Professional Learning offered by Pre-K 4 SA covers a variety of ECE topics. From STEM to cultural awareness and from classroom environment tips to conflict resolution advice, our experts will cover all the bases. Content is strategically designed to help all levels—from entry-level teaching assistants to center directors. Pre-K 4 SA Professional Learning opportunities help educators achieve their career goals no matter where they are on their career path.
To achieve its goal of impacting the future of San Antonio through powerful early childhood education, Pre-K 4 SA offers a Child Development Associates (CDA) program specifically for early childhood paraprofessionals. This FREE course helped more than 50 early learning educators earn the CDA credential in just one year alone. Pre-K 4 SA is also helping to increase the number of accredited child development centers in San Antonio through its Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Cohorts and early learning professional development for early education leaders and directors.
Each year, Pre-K 4 SA provides over 10,000 hours of free, best-in-class professional learning to more than 2,000 early childhood educators throughout San Antonio. Pre-K 4 SA is the premier continuing education choice for local educators. We are changing the landscape of early childhood education one teacher at a time, one opportunity at a time.
