T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN links education, compensation and commitment to improving the quality of early education.

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN is a statewide scholarship program designed to help child care center teaching staff, preschool teachers, family child care providers, group home owners, center directors, and administrators meet their professional development goals, while continuing their current employment in regulated early childhood and school age care settings.

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN addresses two major challenges in the early education and care field – low wages and high turnover. The scholarship helps increase compensation and the retention of skilled teachers.
The education level of child care providers is one of the most critical indicators of the quality of a child’s experiences in child care.

Currently, there are five scholarship models to support
credit-based education:

  • Building Foundations
  • CDA Assessment
  • Part-time Associate's Degree
  • Associate's Degree (or CDA Training)
  • Bachelor's Degree
  • ZS Endorsement

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN, the scholarship recipient, and the sponsoring program work in partnership.

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® MICHIGAN is a licensed program of
Child Care Services Association.
