The Professional Preparation of Early Care and Education Providers: Addressing the Mismatch between Policy and Practice
Goble, Carla B.; Moran, James D.; Horm, Diane M.
Zero to Three (J), v30 n1 p43-46 Sep 2009
Research continues to highlight the relationship between high quality preschool experiences for young children and the educational preparedness of their teachers. As a result, there is an increasing call for enhanced educational preparation for early childhood teachers working in the wide spectrum of programs serving infants, toddlers, and preschool children. Many higher education institutions are not adequately meeting the challenge of providing course content in early childhood development, teaching practices, infant-toddler care, and competence in working with families to adequately recruit and prepare early childhood teachers. Issues and suggestions for addressing these problems will be explored in this article.
