How do I get a degree...and pay for it?

TEACH logoT.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN is a statewide scholarship program designed to help child care center teachering 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:

    • Building Foundations
    • CDA Assessment
    • Part-time Associate's Degree
    • Associate's Degree (or CDA Training)
    • Bachelor's Degree

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN, the scholarship recipient, and the sponsoring program work in partnership.

Online Class

Online training is great for busy professionals. Courses are available 24/7, so there is no hassle with specific class times that don't fit your schedule. Plus, there are no parking or transportation worries. You save gas, time and money. 

Online class time is: when you are ready! You can work around your family's schedule and other obligations. ProSolutions Training also lets you start and stop whenever you need to if you can't finish a course all in one sitting. 

Plus, if you have questions, you can email them and get an answer the same day (or the following day if you email at night!), so you don't have to wait for a specific "class time" to ask a question or seek help. 

Enrollment is quick and easy, with no long forms to fill out. You go to class, study and take tests at your convenience. All in all, online training is perfect for early care and education professionals!
