MMCI Sessions

NOEEN was awarded grant funding from the Department of Education to facilitate intensive Infant/Toddler MMCI CLASS trainings in Orleans Parish. The grant will allow us to provide MMCI training in schools, Head Start programs and private Type III early learning centers in Orleans Parish. We are currently launching our fourth cohort of MMCI trainings!

Register early to make sure you get a spot in a class with a location and time that's convenient for you.
The MMCI Group Coaching program helps participants learn to use the CLASS® lens as a framework for understanding and improving the key teacher-child interactions that boost teacher professional development and children’s learning. During these group-coaching workshops, participants will:
  • Increase their ability to identify and provide interactions that promote learning;
  • Build their understanding of effective teaching from real classroom video observations; and
  • Grow professionally through interactive sessions with your fellow teachers and leaders.
Due to restrictions in funding, folks who do not attend all the session will not be elligible for the stipend. These participants are also eligible to receive stipends of $150 for attending all sessions. Please note that any training that is longer than two hours is considered a double session. If you miss one of these sessions it is equivalent to missing 2 sessions. 

While the grant funding for the current MMCI cohort prevents us from offering it to staff from other parishes, we hope to be able to make this important opportunity available in other parishes in the future!

NOTE: If you are signing up for a class with 6 dates, they are 'double sessions' (two sessions in one day).

A list of confirmed dates and locations is available in our flier and in the chart below! 

Do I need my director or principal's support?

Yes! We will be asking each director or principal for an assurance that they have approved of their staff's participation. If they do not complete and submit the very short assurance form when you apply, they will be asked to do so prior to the start of classes.
