T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood National Center

The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center (TEACH) supports early childhood organizations in 23 states and Washington, DC. The organization provides training, research, management tools, and technical assistance.

TEACH works with states to advance advocacy, strategies, policy, and funding for: access to early childhood degrees, increased compensation, and improved workforce retention. 

Alliance-Funded Support for Sate Advocacy

This year, TEACH is building on its successful model of using state-based teams to address barriers to improving compensation and attaining higher education degrees or credentials in the early education profession. It is working with seven state teams—five continuing and two new ones.

TEACH is providing these states with technical assistance, tools, training and resources to build capacity to meet outcomes and disseminate lessons learned to the early childhood field.
