What is T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood®?
The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® (Teacher Education and Compensation Helps) Initiative is a national, evidence-based strategy that creates access to higher education for teachers, directors and family child care providers working with young children in out-of-home settings. T.E.A.C.H. provides comprehensive scholarships to enable these early educators to take coursework leading to credentials and degrees by making it possible for them to afford both the time and expense of going to school.
