The Wyoming Statewide Training and Resource System (STARS) provides you a place to:
For State Departments
For the Early Childhood and Afterschool Fields
The Lattice provides a common system for all Wyoming early childhood professionals to document and quantify their professional growth and accomplishments. It is meant for use by Early Childhood (EC) professionals working directly with or on behalf of children birth through age 8 and their families to support a highly competent EC workforce. Formal education, professional development and specialized credentials and certifications are identified at each level of the lattice. It can be used by EC professionals as a tool for individualized assessment and setting professional development goals. It can also provide a means by which professionals can become more empowered in determining the course of their professional development through the portfolio submission option.
The Registry is currently managed by Align through a contract with the Wyoming Department of Family Services. These professionals are guided by best practices including technology and data confidentiality policies.
