Teaming: Enhance Your Team by Rethinking Your Orientation, Intention, and Motivation


The Child Care State Capacity Building Center (SCBC) is sponsoring a new peer learning group (PLG) titled “Teaming: Enhance Your Team by Rethinking Your Orientation, Intention, and Motivation.” The new forum is for states and territories that want to build or strengthen the performance of specific teams whose focus is on Child Care and Development Fund program priorities. This is an exciting opportunity developed in response to early childhood professionals’ requests for a teaming focus.


This PLG is designed for teams, not individuals. As a result, states and territories may submit a Letter of Interest for a specific team only. Participation in this PLG is limited to six state or territory teams. If more than six teams submit a Letter of Interest, a second cohort will be offered at a later date. Team membership may be done as a cross-sector or interagency team. SCBC recommends that each team comprise four to six members at most. Each team will designate one person as the coordinator for its group; the coordinator will share information, remind members of meetings, and organize any work that needs to occur between webinars.


  • Letter of Interest forms will be made available on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
  • Letters of Interest are due by Friday, September 28, 2018.
  • The PLG will meet between November 2018 and February 2019 and will include four webinars.
