Administrator Supports/Team Building
The world of preschool is often a very different education philospohy than most adminstartors have experience in. Administrator Supports/Team Building is specially designed for a complete understanding of all the main components that make up high quality programming, what a day in preschool should look like, how to support your teachers and create an early childhood team that spans grade levels. These training sessions are highly recommended for programs applying for state preschool funding/grants.
The maze of applying for grants and RFPs can be hard to navigate. Successful proposals take a thorough understanding of the criteria and an eye for detail in which many administrators don't have enough time. Our Grant Writing/Proposals team assists schools in a project manager approach, making sure all documents are provided, checked for accuracy and compliance, are professionally organized and bound, and meet the deadlines. We specialize in preschool early childhood funding.
