Welcome Early Childhood Educators!
Thinkport now offers a space dedicated to the important work of early childhood educators and child care providers in preparing children for school success.
We know that quality Early Childhood education is crucial in preparing children to enter school ready to learn and to build a foundation for a bright academic future. Thinkport has now expanded to provide high quality curricular resources for kids and high quality professional development for child care providers and early childhood educators.
In this newly designed Early Childhood Section of Thinkport, caregivers and educators can find research-based, innovative broadcast programs, supporting standards-based web content and multimedia to help them meet the critical literacy and early learning needs of young children.
Professionals can also access state-approved online courses to meet their licensing and certification needs. Facilitated and non-facilitated courses specifically designed for child care center staff and family child care providers are available.
Funding for the this section has been provided by:
This program was funded through the Child Care Development Fund grant to the Maryland State Department of Education by the Department of Health and Human Services
