Learn how to use your existing program documents to create and revise a meaningful Program Portfolio that supports and enables continuous quality improvement. Join this workshop to:
- Distinguish between high-quality evidence and less robust evidence
- Create policies using statements of best practice
- Identify methods of ensuring continuous quality improvement in your program
Note: This workshop is designed for early childhood professionals working with center- and school-based programs serving young children with prior knowledge of NAEYC Accreditation who are ready for more detail about how to create or revise a Program Portfolio.
Registration Fees: $199 for NAEYC members; $249 for non-members.
