Training Rural Early Educators (Project TREE)
The goals of Project TREE are:
- Increase the number of well-qualified EI/ECSE professionals entering the field and
working in rural settings by graduating 40 Master’s degree students eligible for Colorado
ECSE Specialist Licensure upon program completion.
- Review and enhance course offerings to more effectively prepare professionals in three critical national, state and local need areas: collaboration, consultation, and coaching; working with children and families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds; and appropriate and effective use of assessment data to guide goal development and instruction.
Number of supported Students
Project TREE has funded 47 students from Colorado and beyond. New scholarships are no longer being awarded.
