Support for early education options

The proposed regulations provide more and stronger opportunities for promoting a more effective early education workforce in Virginia.  The add-on endorsement for 3-4 year-olds and the prek-3 endorsement propose a stronger focus on candidates' demonstrating skills in effective teaching and knowledge of content and child development appropriate to that age range and educational program.  The proposed language and endorsements will help strengthen Virginia's educational programs for young children.
