Update: Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators Draft #2
Draft #2 of the revised Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators is now available for public comment.
Power to the Profession Decision Cycle 2 recommends the creatation of nationally agreed-upon professional competencies for early childhood educators. The NAEYC 2010 Standards for Initial and Advance Early Childhood Preparation Programs have been elevated to be more explicitly positioned as the foundation for the standards and competencies of the early childhood educator profession, with the expectation and condition that NAEYC shall prioritize a revision of these standards through an inclusive and collaborative process.
This next set of draft recommendations, known as Decision Cycles 345+6 Discussion Draft 2, is the result of the careful deliberation on some critical questions. This draft lays out a bold vision for the future of the profession and offers a unifying pathway to get there. Recommendations are focused on differentiating pathways, preparation, and compensation.
