Educational Incentive Program: Coaching Overview

Coaching is designed to help child care providers improve the overall quality of their child care program. Child care providers work with a coach to determine areas they would like to improve upon. Together, they develop goals and create a coaching plan to successfully achieve those goals.

Currently, only those individuals who hold the Practice Based Coaching Endorsement of the Pyramid Model are eligible to coach. For a list of these coaches please contact EIP.

The New York State Association for the Education of Young Children (NYSAEYC) is developing a Coach credential. Once this credential is available, Credentialed Coaches will be able to participate with EIP coaching.

Please check back in the spring for updated information about Coaching.
