Philadelphia's early care and education (ECE) stakeholders have developed the "ECE IHE Gold Standards" which reflect ten big ideas to better align teacher preparation programs with the unique needs of the early childhood sector. The session will share how we, as customers of teacher preparation programs, have raised the voice of the field to develop collaborative relationships that improve the quality of and access to programs. Participants will brainstorm ideas for how they can use these ideas in their communities.
