A Project of River Valley Child Development Services


What is T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® WEST VIRGINIA?

The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® WEST VIRGINIA (T.E.A.C.H. WV) scholarship project was developed to upgrade the level of education of teachers working with young children while making the educational process affordable, increasing wages and reducing turnover. The project was developed in North Carolina in 1990 by Child Care Services Association (which provides the T.E.A.C.H. license for West Virginia) and has spread to 22 states, including West Virginia. For FY 2008, nationally, T.E.A.C.H. provided 21,272 scholarships and increased compensation 5-10+% with the majority of state turnover rates under 5%.
