UF’s Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies research scientist, Dr. Herman Knopf, works with CHILD Center staff and our partners at ELC to bring the Zucker Center’s Practice-Based Coaching model to classrooms across Alachua County. Here, our coaches are being trained to provide this innovative form of professional development at centers in the area so that those centers can build their skill sets and improve the quality of early learning services provided.
