What Principals Need to Know About Preschool: The Principal’s Role in High Quality Early Childhood Learning Environments



This session is for principals who have preschool classrooms in their buildings who want to further their understanding of:



  • the unique developmental stage of early childhood, birth to age eight with a focus on preschool,

  • the indispensable components and practices of High-Quality Early Childhood learning environments – what teaching and learning should look like in the preschool classroom,

  • successfully meeting the needs of all young children, including English learners (ELs) and children who have Individual Education Plans (IEPs) in the least restrictive environment,

  • B-3 to PreK and PreK to K transitions

  • the principal’s critical role in establishing and supporting all of the above,

  • the specific tools available from CT State Department of Education (CSDE) and CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC) that will guide all the work listed above resulting in improved outcomes for all young children.
