Early childhood education -- Standards -- Iowa;
In 2006, early learning standards were written in Iowa for children from birth to five years of age; however, very few opportunities were designed to inform early childhood personnel of the existence of lowa's early learning standards, and how they were reflected in early childhood programming. In 2008, a grant from the Iowa Department of Management was awarded to Tammy Bormann of Early Learning and Caring Resources to write a training series for early childhood personnel based on the Iowa Early Learning Standards; Welcome to the Iowa Early Learning Standards. In 2010, Tammy worked with Child Care Resource and Referral of Central Iowa to design and offer a Train-the-Trainer workshop to provide training to instructors, who contract with Child Care Resource and Referral, on how to instruct the series. This project includes the outline for that Train-the-Trainer. Welcome to the Iowa Early Learning Standards and the Train-the-Trainer workshop were guided by three underlying questions: ( 1) What are early learning standards?, (2) What is contained in the Iowa Early Learning Standards?, and (3) What is effective professional development?
