FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A free online training course has been released to help early childhood professionals prepare Kentucky children for success in school.

The Governor's Office of Early Childhood says the course supports the new STARS quality rating system to be launched later this year. The early childhood office is partnering with Kentucky Educational Television in the initiative.

The course aims to strengthen the state's early childhood workforce. It examines the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards and their essential components, which include standards, benchmarks and example behaviors.

Kentucky's Early Childhood Standards are the basis for planning teacher-led activities and designing environments in an early childhood setting.
