The intent of the Wyoming Early Learning Foundations committee is to support the efforts of families, child care providers, and programs to work together to secure access and availability of experiences that will ensure that each child in Wyoming can succeed in school and life. This includes supporting families not only as teachers, but as engaged partners in making decisions for the well-being of their children. 1) The family environment is the child’s first classroom, and parents and family members are the first teachers. The preschool teacher’s responsibility is to continue fostering that family engagement and to carry on the learning process at school. 2) In this collaborative effort, we also recognize that no child is “standard” and that our Guiding Principles celebrate the diversity of practitioners in individuals and in our communities.
