Congratulations to Portsmouth Academy Preschool’s faculty and staff, who recently completed their early childhood credential through the New Hampshire Early Childhood Professional Development System (NHECPDS)!
Credentials were awarded in the area of Early Childhood Teacher, Master Teacher, and Early Childhood Master Professional-Individual Mentor & Program Consultant.
The faculty & staff complete a professional development plan for professional growth. The plan begins with reflection and results in goal setting based on self-assessment using an Early Childhood competency tool.
Competencies are evidence-based knowledge and skills that Early Childhood Professionals develop and demonstrate in their work with, or on behalf of, children ages birth through grade three and their families.
Congratulations, Preschool faculty and staff, for this achievement!
