National Center for Early Development & Learning, Chapel Hill, NC.
This issue of the NCEDL Spotlights series announces the availability of a national directory of institutions offering programs for early childhood teachers, "The National Directory of Early Childhood Teacher Preparation Institutions," published by NCEDL and the Council for Professional Recognition. The directory contains listings for nearly 1,400 two- and four-year colleges and is available both on a Web site and in print format. Organized alphabetically by state/jurisdiction and then by city, the directory includes institutions offering associate's degrees and bachelor's degrees, as well as Child Development Associate training and distance-learning programs. Each listing contains the name of the school, address, telephone number, name of contact person, email address, and the early childhood specialty area. The report describes how the directory was prepared and the procedures for updating the directory. The report also provides initial findings from a survey of 600 programs contacted for the directory.
