Welcome te New Mexico PreK


Welcome to the NM PreK Video Library

The NM PreK Video-Based Consultation Project supports teachers and other service providers to learn new skills, participate in ongoing professional development, and engage in reflective practice and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI).
The purpose of the Video Library is to share the work of the Project, including illustrations of ways that video can be used as a foundation for reflective practice, coaching, consultation, and supervision to enhance early care and education practices.
