childcare training courses - promoting early education quality


Promoting Early Education Quality (PEEQ) is a statewide program of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension dedicated to encouraging the adoption of research- and evidence-based practices in all levels of the early education field. One way we do this is by providing an extensive selection of professional development tools for early childhood professionals aligned with state-mandated training requirements and industry standards, including in-person training events hosted by County Extension Agents across the state, instructor-led virtual training opportunities, and a robust library of self-paced online courses. In addition to training teachers, caregivers, and administrators, we also train various groups who provide technical assistance for the early childhood workforce, such as Child Care Health Consultants, Texas Healthy Building Blocks Technical Assistance Consultants, and Child Care Regulation staff. We also collaborate with other state agencies, institutions of higher education, and other stakeholders on a variety of initiatives to improve Texas’ early education systems. In everything we do, we strive to make science-based practices accessible, actionable, and achievable for practitioners.
