Preschool and Early Learning
Professional Learning Community (PLC)
Are you a professional who’s responsible for the oversight and coordination of preschool programming, child find and related early learning opportunities? If so, the NHASEA is excited to invite you to participate in a Professional Learning Community (PLC) for Preschool Special Education Coordinators and Special Education Administrators and other early learning professionals responsible for overseeing Early Childhood Special Education in their educational community. Over the past several school years, over 70 preschool coordinators participated in this PLC and found the topics and conversations to be beneficial to their work and the young children and families they serve. Early Childhood Special Education professionals appreciate the opportunity to discuss relevant topics with others who understand the unique challenges they face. We look forward to further interactive discussions on hot topics identified by the professionals registered for this 2022-2023 PLC.
The PLC will meet every other month from September through May to:
- Increase knowledge of best practices regarding the unique needs of the three to five-year-old population.
- Build relationships, network and engage in collegial support with Preschool Special Education Coordinators throughout New Hampshire.
- Strengthen leadership skills by sharing strategies and expertise.
- Learn about and share new resources to support the many challenges specific to our youngest learners.
- Explore specific topics of interest in smaller breakout sessions as appropriate.
- Plan and participate in events to allow extra time to collaborate and network with PLC members

"Overall, this PLC has been the best PD that I have participated in for the last 3 years. I have developed relationships with many other preschool coordinators. I feel supported in my role and feel that I have a great team to reach out to with questions that are preschool specific. Tammy has done a great job taking our burning topics and finding resources and people to facilitate meaningful discussions. I look forward to participating again next year!"
