T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN is a statewide scholarship program designed to help child care center staff, preschool teachers, family child care providers, group home owners, center directors, and administrators meet their professional development goals, while continuing their current employment in regulated early childhood and school age care settings.
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN addresses two major challenges in the early education and care field – low wages and high turnover. The scholarship helps increase compensation and the retention of skilled teachers.
The education level of child care providers is one of the most critical indicators of the quality of a child’s experiences in child care.
Currently, there are five scholarship models to support credit-based education:
Part-time Associate's Degree
Associate's Degree (or CDA Training)
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN, the scholarship recipient, and the sponsoring program work in partnership. For more information visit the T.E.A.C.H. website.
