STEM Teacher Training & Professional Development

Ensure success in bringing KIBO to your young learners with effective and proven PD and STEM Training for Early Childhood Educators.

STEM Training for Early Childhood Educators

STEM Learning Starts with Teaching

Teaching coding, engineering, and STEM in early childhood requires age-appropriate tools. But quality professional development is every bit as important. In fact, improving teachers’ skills is an important part of our mission to improve students’ STEM skills.

Early childhood teachers may not have coding education backgrounds, so it’s important to include relevant PD and STEM training for early childhood educators when implementing educational solutions, like KIBO.

The Computer Science Teachers’ Association has certified KinderLab’s KIBO Professional Development as a Quality PD Program.

Our KIBO Workshops & STEM Training for Early Childhood Educators

KinderLab conducts virtual workshops with customers of all sizes, ranging from large public school districts to individual independent schools, from regional Head Start organizations to neighborhood preschools. Our PD team offers both on-site and remote workshops for teachers, specialists, and district PD providers. These workshops range from one-hour web conferences to multi-day in-person workshops on KIBO and STEAM education best practices. 

Delivered either remotely or in-person at your school or district offices, our workshops include plenty of hands-on experiences with KIBO to help teachers feel comfortable with the technology. We also discuss pedagogical approaches to creative technology education in early childhood, including promoting student collaboration, SEL, and design thinking through STEAM.
