Getting Ready for Pre-K: An Institute for Educators

Pre-Kindergarten Summer Institute

Getting Ready for Pre-KThis three-day professional development series in August 2014, was a partnership between Bank Street College and the New York City Department of Education, is designed to advance best practices in prekindergarten teaching and learning. This program incorporates the New York State Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core and principles of emotionally responsive practice and will prepare educators to:

  • Welcome children and families to the classroom environment
  • Implement a developmentally sound and safe early childhood classroom curriculum
  • Help all children experience success in school with particular attention to children with a wide developmental range including children with a disability
  • Establish a safe and familiar environment for the children from diverse cultural and language backgrounds
  • Engage in reflective practice to promote instruction and student performance

Pre-K Summer Institute attendance is crucial for understanding how to develop a high quality prekindergarten learning environment.
