Master Teachers

Four Master Teachers provide intense on-the-job training for childcare paraprofessionals. They work side-by-side for 160 hours to model and practice skills consistent with accreditation standards established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Daily workshops and activities help to form appropriate practices in the areas of discipline, learning environments, interaction, lesson planning, age-appropriate activities, parent communication and more.

The childcare teachers improve their skills in the reality of their own classroom, with the assistance of a trusted mentor. Each teacher receives workshop credits that meet licensing standards as well as the Early Learning Coalition's annual requirement within the normal hours of their work week. Each site may receive materials valued up to $500 to also assist in improving their school. The Master Teacher program is offered to childcare sites at no cost to them, thanks to Publix Super Markets Charities.
