The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) and VINCI, home of award-winning VINCI Blended Learning curriculum and ClassVINCI, announced a multi-year partnership to further develop and promote effective leadership practice in early childhood education focused on improving instruction and learning in the earliest grades. This partnership will produce resources supporting effective leadership practice in pre-K to grade 3 (PK-3), including integrating blended learning and technology in the early years, and creating professional development to build the capacity of principals leading schools that serve children from age three to grade three.
NAESP and VINCI recognize the importance of high-quality early learning opportunities for all children and will work together to help build the capacity of principals in PK-3 education to close and ultimately prevent achievement gaps between students from disadvantaged households and their more affluent peers.
"We know that the skills and competencies learned at a very young age will have a direct and exponential effect on a child's future," said Dan Yang, creator of VINCI. "The best way to provide young students the foundation they need to be successful is to make sure that their teachers and principals are equipped with the knowledge, training and technology they need to deliver best-in-class education to our earliest learners. VINCI is proud to work with NAESP and to support the development and delivery of these resources."
