Teachstone is très excited to announce the official launch of the CLASS Pre-K tool in French! In collaboration with the University of Québec in Montreal (UQAM) and CASIOPE, our new authorized training partner, we are now able to provide Pre-K Intro and Observation trainings to early childhood centers in both French and English. This initiative is in response to the new measurement and quality improvement program that was signed into law in the province of Québec. The program, developed and administered by the Ministry of Family, seeks to promote quality across more than 2,500 child care settings in the province.
You can also join the Facebook group for French observers here.
