T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® – Across The Country

In 1990, Child Care Services Association of Chapel Hill, North Carolina created the Teacher Education and Compensation Helps (T.E.A.C.H.) Early Childhood Project to address the issues of under education, poor compensation and high turnover within the early childhood workforce.  This project has expanded and is now available in over 20 states, including Nebraska.  All T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® scholarships link continuing education with increased compensation and require that recipients and their sponsoring child care programs share in the cost. T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® began in Nebraska in 2002 under the NeAEYC umbrella and is a state-wide project.

Students working toward an Associates Degree can attend any of the community colleges in Nebraska.  Students working toward their Bachelors Degree can attend the universities that have the Unified Endorsement in Early Childhood Degree and are actively working on articulation agreements with the community colleges

Funding for the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® NEBRASKA project is provided from the Child Care Development Fund through the Nebraska Department of Education and the Health and Human Services System, private foundations and individual donations.  This project also receives guidance and support from the T.E.A.C.H. Advisory Committee.
