“Tech Goes Home Tennessee” graduates more than 100 early child care educators

We posted this article in late November about an expansion of The Enterprise Center‘s “Tech Goes Home Chattanooga” program to provide digital skills training for early child care educators across the state.

Last week, the non-profit announced that more than 100 early child care educators representing 84 facilities licensed by the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) have completed the 15-hour program and about 470 are on the waitlist.

The expansion, named “Tech Goes Home Tennessee,” is the result of a growing partnership with the Tennessee Child Care Resource & Referral Network that has been enhanced by grant funding through TDHS and Signal Centers.

“Bridging the digital divide — especially for those who are educating the next generation — is imperative,” explained Deb Socia, Chief Executive Officer of The Enterprise Center, in this news release. “This program not only provides opportunities for these valuable employees to access training and certifications for career growth, but also ensures that they are equipped with everything they need to prepare the next generation for the future.”
