Early Childhood Education Best Practices

Intro - STEM image


At TEA, our vision is to prepare every child in Texas for success in college, career, or the military. This vision is set forth by building a foundation for knowledge and skills in reading, math, and other developmentally appropriate subjects that serve the whole child in early childhood education, prekindergarten–grade 2. In partnership with families, schools, and communities, the Early Childhood Education Division at TEA provides support, resources, and guidance that are aligned to effective early learning practices and support the foundational framework for creating a high-quality early childhood education program. 

The information provided is not intended to replace individual adopted instructional material, nor is it designed to override district policies. Rather, this information can be used to support the design and implementation of a high-quality early childhood program.
