The Texas Early Learning Council created a new website for the public awareness campaign, which will include a new online tool to view the Infant, Toddler, and Three-Year-Old Early Learning Guidelines, and all of the TV and radio ads from the awareness campaign!

As part of the Council's commitment to supporting collaboration and early childhood program quality improvement, the Council created "Partners in Action; A Mentoring Toolkit for Early Childhood Providers." This toolkit is intended to help early childhood programs create and set up their own "in-house" mentoring projects. The toolkit also includes supplemental tools and resource sets to assist early childhood programs to set-up their own mentoring programs.
