Is IMPACT Right For You?
Directors, are you struggling with teacher turnover?
With IMPACT’s on-demand courses and available consultation to help transfer knowledge into action, we customize supports to meet the needs of each teacher. When childcare and early learning teachers have the knowledge and skills they need, and are encouraged to reflect on their practice, we see a reduction in teacher stress and less teacher turnover.
