The S.C. Program for Infant/Toddler Care (SCPITC), in partnership with the ABC Quality Rating and Improvement Program, has some exciting news to share with you. We are pleased to offer a wonderful professional development opportunity for a select few infant/toddler teachers in the state: participation in the Partners for Quality Mentor-Teacher Course!
This course is highly recommended by SCPITC and will provide the participating teacher or family child care provider with an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to serve as a mentor to a peer care-teacher in the community. Participating in this course is a great next step for early care and education professionals who are knowledgeable about high quality infant/toddler care and are interested in learning more about how to mentor and coach another adult to support them in improving the quality of care they provide.
SCPITC is offering full scholarships for the course – an $1,800 value! Participants who successfully complete the course will earn 4 CEUs. The course meets for 8 days over a four-month period in Atlanta. The course scholarship includes the course fee, course materials, hotel expenses (double occupancy) and some mileage reimbursement. The scheduled course meeting dates are as follows:
Session 1 & 2: March 7-8
