For more than 15 years, ICF has supported government, military, and private organizations domestically and internationally to enhance the capacity of early childhood professionals to influence positive outcomes for young children and their families.
As many states across the United States pass legislation that mandates more rigorous standards for early childhood programs, requirements for professional development are gaining increased importance. These requirements confirm that comprehensive, targeted professional development is fundamental to the effectiveness and success of early childhood programs.
Whether onsite or online, ICF Early Education Institute™ provides tools such as mMET, training and technical assistance, and a suite of tailored services designed to help programs meet mandated requirements and demonstrate accountability to funding sources. Our end-to-end services are research-based and culturally relevant, incorporating the principles of adult learning theory. Along a continuum designed to advise, implement, and improve, we offer innovative approaches to building essentials skills.
