Monthly News & Updates 
The Department of Early Education and Care's (EEC) Professional Qualifications Unit has released a new Professional Qualifications Course Catalog.  This catalog provides a listing of early education and care courses at institutions of higher education in Massachusetts that align with EEC's coursework requirements for teacher certification.
The courses listed in EEC's Professional Qualifications Course Catalog reflect the information that was available at the time the catalog was developed; actual course offerings may differ from what is listed in the catalog. 

Please note that  this catalog is subject to change and the listed courses may be subject to further review by EEC.  


Grant Opportunity 


BUILD Initiative is proud to launch The Project HOPE Consortium, a new partnership with BMC Vital Village Network and Nemours, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 

Project HOPE is designed to generate real progress toward equitable outcomes for young children (prenatal to age five) and their families by building the capacity of local communities, state leaders, cross-sector state teams, and local coalitions to prevent social adversities in early childhood and promote child well-being.

Selected community coalitions/teams will be invited to apply for grants of up to $80,000 over 18 months. Selected state teams and individual leader survey respondents will be invited to apply for seven state grants of up to $200,000 over 24 months. Complete your Expression of Interest Survey before March 8, 2018. 

Join BUILD Initiative, BMC Vital Village, and Nemours for an informational webinar on Thursday, February 8 at 2:00 PM ET.

Any questions can be submitted to projecthope20182020@gmail.com.
