One key to retaining staff in the early childhood care and learning environment, is to ensure we are setting them up with the knowledge, skills, and ability to be successful in their roles and build a sense of connection/belonging to our program. Coaching is one of the best ways to impact that sense of belonging with our staff. We all know how turnover affects the bottom line of our business. Tune into our next webinar to learn more about coaching your team to success. Please share this webinar information to your ECE network.

Calendar-time represents the early childhood teachers' collective identity crisis

A thought provoking opinion piece from an Early Learning Blogger --- "Care is education. Play is education. No one will ever respect us or understand us unless we proudly name and show who we are. We will never be free from the collective identity crisis until we stop borrowing and adopting practices, language, and images that are not our own and that do not rise to meet the brilliance of the young children we hold in our arms.​"

Listen to our board member, Cammra Wakagawa " I believe in the work that Idaho AEYC does because it improves quality education for children and families in Idaho. As a parent of four children, administrator of a large child care provider, and member of the community in Boise, I see the need for parents to have proper child care options at their fingertips.
