Tuition for the University of Memphis courses for directors can be funded in different
ways. Directors can choose to pay their own tuition, employers can pay for directors’
tuition, or directors can apply for tuition assistance through the Tennessee Early
Childhood Training Alliance (TECTA). Seventy – five to 85% of the tuition may be paid
for with a scholarship from TECTA provided the director attends a no-cost orientation
for 30 hours.
Mentoring & Technical Assistance
Directors of accredited centers in Shelby County provide mentoring support to the
RSG program and to the directors of child care centers enrolled in the program. Accredited
center directors share their time and expertise regarding the self-study process and
specialized areas of working with young children and their families.
Participants also receive on-site technical assistance.
