Additional Workshop Offerings

WGTE has certified teachers to provide the following Step Up to Quality professional development trainings, but no current grant funding to schedule the classes.

Child Care Centers or early childhood groups may request these trainings.  The cost (for up to 25 participants) is $100 for each hour of training.  For example, a 2.5 hour class would cost $250; a 1.5 hour class would cost $150.  All materials are provided and fees must be paid in advance.  Workshops can be held at WGTE for no additional charge.  Workshops off-site may be subject to an additional travel cost.
