Karrie Kalich Receives Grant from HNHfoundation

Dr. Karrie Kalich has been awarded a grant from the HNHfoundation for the creation and dissemination of a seven-module online Early Sprouts curriculum training course that will be available to child care professionals in and potentially beyond New Hampshire.  Hosted by the Keene State College server, the online training will be available to any interested preschool or child care providers and will enable Early Sprouts to be implemented in its full potential, encourage and support providers in adopting the program, and increase providers’ confidence in their ability to run the program. The Early Sprouts online training will provide an excellent, low cost and convenient opportunity for centers to encourage staff to earn the needed professional development hours. The professional development hours required by the Child Care Licensing Rules will increase by 50% in July 2012. Progress through the modules will be at the user’s own pace and convenience, eliminating the need for preschool or child care centers to host or travel to trainings. Upon completion of the course, the program will generate a professional Early Sprouts certificate with ongoing professional training credit hours that are approved by the NH Child Care Licensing Unit and Early Childhood Professional Development System and aligned with other states’ requirements.

Karrie Kalich, the creator of the Early Sprouts program, will serve as the project director. Lynn Arnold, who has served as the Early Sprouts program coordinator for the past four years, will play an integral role in the development, pilot testing and dissemination of the Early Sprouts Online Training Course.
