Early Childhood/Preschool

The Early Childhood Consultants at Prairie Lakes AEA support district preschool programs in a variety of ways to help their youngest learners flourish socially, emotionally, and academically.  We provide continued development training for teachers, aides, and associates to help identify opportunities for innovation. Our coaching supports early childhood programs to create engaging, hands on, and developmentally appropriate environments in preschool programs.  We are passionate about meeting the needs of our district preschools, so that they can provide a strong foundation for life-long learning and well-being in our preschool programs.
