Professional Development

Our curriculum model is paired with a data-driven professional development approach that builds a teacher’s toolbox.

Ongoing Implementation Support

Too often, a curriculum ends up sitting on a shelf collecting dust or is used in pieces. STREAMin³ is more than just a box of materials — it’s a comprehensive model that includes the ongoing professional development (PD) educators need to make the curriculum come alive in their classroom.

How Does It Work?

STREAMin³ provides ongoing training and professional development to increase educators’ understanding of the curriculum and improve their interactions and experiences with children.

All enrolled classrooms have access to on demand courses to learn on your own time and at your own pace, monthly live or recorded webinars for bite-sized nuggets of learning, and monthly interactive live online trainings to connect with a coach in a group setting and deepen your knowledge throughout the year.

Comprehensive Onboarding 

Enrolled classrooms are encouraged to go through our comprehensive on demand onboarding course to build the foundations for successful implementation.

Embedded PD

Educators can use the Core Skill Focus of the Week to grow in their understanding of the curriculum week by week.

Canvas On Demand Courses

After onboarding, access learning courses including the Deeper Dive, Core Skill Routine, and Trainer courses. These online asynchronous offerings provide a deeper understanding of the curriculum.

Monthly Ongoing PD Opportunities

Monthly webinars and live online trainings will keep the learning going all year long for educators and leaders.

Make it Your Own

Our curriculum is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Through ongoing coaching and implementation support, educators are encouraged and empowered to modify STREAMin³ activities and routines to meet the needs of their children and classrooms — all while staying true to the Core Skill objectives and Intentional Teaching Practices. Ongoing professional development opportunities help educators develop a deep understanding of the curriculum so they can successfully adapt it to best serve the children in their care.

What Data-Driven Means

At STREAMin³, we know professional development is best when it’s tailored to the needs of each child, teacher, and program. And we do that by using data. STREAMin³ supports educators to use data (classroom observations, child assessments, and family feedback) to understand their needs and to shape professional development experiences.
