State-wide support for all early childhood education coaches.
A Collaborative, Caring Community
Coaches are an important part of the early childhood education ecosystem in Nebraska. While everyone agrees that providing quality care and education to young children is the ultimate goal, coaches are focused on improving outcomes specifically among the teachers and administrators of these programs, and increasing access to quality, equitable environments for all children and families.
We are here to support coaches as they support early childhood educators.
Competencies for Professional Practice
We’ve created a custom guidebook, which provides a framework for coaches to hone their interpersonal skills, to open up avenues for self-reflection and to navigate their work and career through five domains:
Setting the foundation
Co-creating the relationship
Facilitating learning through coaching strategies
Assessing success of the coaching partnership
Equipping coaches for success.
The professional development of early childhood education coaches in Nebraska is important to us. The more engaged, enthusiastic and confident coaches feel about their career, the more they will impart those same feelings to the teachers and administrators they work with. The Coach Development Network aims to equip coaches for connection, growth and change while growing and expanding our group of professionals.
