As an early childhood program leader, you know coaching is the most powerful element of continuous quality improvement. Developing your coaching skills is critical to help your staff engage children nurture their development. Join this free eye-opening webinar to learn about a coaching framework for supporting early childhood practitioners’ use of evidence-informed teaching practices. In this session, the editors of Essentials of Practice-Based Coaching will share highlights of their new book about practice-based coaching and essentials for successful implementation.

You will also hear about examples of implementation resources and hear an overview of how to:
