T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood TEXAS

Teacher Education and Compensation Helps (T.E.A.C.H.) Early Childhood TEXAS provides scholarships for those working in licensed child care centers and homes in the state of Texas. The goals of T.E.A.C.H. early Childhood are:

To provide educational scholarship opportunities for people working in regulated child care centers and family child care homes.
To increase the knowledge base of early childhood professionals working with young children, thus improving the care these children receive;
To encourage child care programs to support the continuing education of their staff;
To provide increased compensation that is directly related to increased education;
To reduce staff turnover by supporting the above goals while also requiring from participants a specified time committment to their sponsoring program after the scholarship year;
To provide a sequential educational path for teachers and family child care providers currently in the field;
To create a model of partnership for improving the quality of care that children in child care programs receive.

Funding Needs

Texas AEYC is actively seeking funding to increase the number of T.E.A.C.H.  scholarships we can provide to the approximately 130,000 people working in early childhood in Texas. T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® is a national professional development model that provides more than 15,000 scholarships every year to early childhood education professionals in all sectors of care, including Head Start, Child Care and Pre-K programs. T.E.A.C.H.. Early Childhood® addresses the problems of poor education, low compensation, and high turnover in the child care sector by providing early childhood professional development opportunities for teachers, directors, and family child care providers.  As we increase our funding for scholarship, we can help increase the quality of care children receive in out of home programs across our state.
