The TATS team is appreciative of the time, effort, and work of numerous people who contributed to the success and growth of the children in early childhood settings.
As we approach the beginning of a new school year many staff members are planning and thinking of increasing the successes you have experienced. Below are step-by-step guides for developing processes related to Indicators 6 (Inclusion), 7 (Child Outcomes), and 12 (Transition). These are intended to assist teams through the steps of collecting, analyzing, and using data to inform specific steps to developing quality programs for children.
An additional focus topic for Summer is Supporting Families (link to TATS Talks to Families) through sharing useful information to assist in making the time they have together this summer productive and valuable.
