Infant Toddler Initiative LENA

LENA Grow is a job-embedded professional development program designed to measure and improve the quality of interactions in early childhood programs. Time is a precious resource, especially for teachers and the LENA Grow model recognizes that. Rather than put an extra burden on teachers, the program simply asks them to carry on with their normal daily routines and to participate in brief coaching sessions, which can be delivered virtually or in person. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Gina Kollar, Infant and Toddler Training Specialist at 727-233-8291 ext. 126 or at g.kollar@elcph.org
