A Mentor is . . .

The term “Mentor” or “Mentor Teacher” is used by the California Early Childhood Mentor Program to describe an experienced early childhood education teacher of infants, toddlers, preschoolers or school age children who has applied and been selected by her or his local Mentor Program.  The Mentor Program, funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division, works with 95 community colleges across California.  Those colleges, either individually, or working together in regional groupings, invite early childhood leaders from their community to serve on a Mentor Program Selection Committee.  Each Committee uses the guidelines of the Mentor Program to review applications and select Mentors from a variety of child care settings, including publicly and privately funded centers and large family childcare programs.
