    About KidVision FAQs

    What is the purpose of the KidVision Pre-K website

    It is a professional development website for prekindergarten teachers to learn and teach education standards for 4 year-old children.

    What standards does KidVision Pre-K cover?

    KidVision Pre-K stays current with the Florida Early Learning and Development Standards for 4-year olds, a link to these standards are on our Teacher Development page. The Florida standards align with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework, which are also linked on our Teacher Development page.

    What are in-service hours and CEUs?

    According to Florida Statutes, “On an annual basis, in order to further their child care skills, child care personnel who have fulfilled the requirements for child care training shall be required to take an additional 1 continuing education unit (CEU) of approved in-service training, or 10-clock-hours of equivalent training.”

    Is KidVision Pre-K an approved training for annual in-service hours and CEUs?

    Yes. We have partnered with the Florida Association for Child Care Management (FACCM) to issue IACET certified CEUs. Prior to September 8th, Nova Southeastern University, an accredited university, validated KidVision Pre-K CEUs and In-Service hours. Their logos are on all KidVision Pre-K transcripts.

    Is KidVision Pre-K recognized as a face-to-face state standards training, necessary for the Director’s Credential?

    No. KidVision Pre-K is an online training. A director must take the face-to-face training, but can use KidVision Pre-K in-service hours and CEUs to fulfill further requirements. There is a brief tutorial of the face-to-face standards training on the Teacher Development page of the website for directors to review material learned during the face-to-face and share with teachers.

    On the Florida DCF in-service training list of options, what area of training is KidVision Pre-K?

    KidVision Pre-K falls under ‘age appropriate lesson planning’ and ‘other course areas relating to child care’. KidVision Pre-K is an online ‘Early Learning and Developmental Standards for 4-year-olds’ training.

    Can In-Service Hours and CEUs be earned every year or only one time for each field trip?

    Each year on July 1st KidVision Pre-K resets it’s website so that teachers can watch field trips again and take new quizzes on the standards, earning credits to fulfill the current year requirement for in-service hours and CEUs. This makes the program sustainable for teachers and useable every year.

    How can the in-service and CEU’s be valid for another year if it was done the year before?

    The standard’s quiz questions are changed each year on July 1st for every unit. Taking new quizzes helps teachers review standards yearly and stay current with new standard developments. The field trips are useable in the classroom every year, for example October is Fire Safety Month, so every October our Field Trip to the Fire Station can be shown in the classroom to enhance learning about fire safety.

    How does KidVision Pre-K fit into The Florida Core Competencies for Early Care & Education Practitioners?

    KidVision Pre-K satisfies Core Knowledge Area 5: Curriculum. A. Understand content knowledge in early childhood education. Tier I. #1. Identify appropriate Early Learning and Developmental Standards for 4-Year-Olds. Tier II. #3. Demonstrate knowledge of the Early Learning and Developmental Standards for 4-Year-Olds in content areas including language, literacy, math, science, social studies, art, music, drama, and movement. Tier III. #8. Plan and implement activities and experiences that support all children’s attainment of the Early Learning and Developmental Standards for 4-Year-Olds. And Tier IV. #10. Integrate the Early Learning and Developmental Standards for 4-Year-Olds in curriculum planning.

    What is the best way to show KidVision Pre-K field trips in the classroom?

    The best way to do it is to look at your monthly themes, consider which field trips match and/or enhance your themes, then show them to your students and do the lesson plans and assessments during that time frame.

    Is it bad to show KidVision Pre-K videos to children in the classroom?

    No. KidVision Pre-K videos are only 6 to 8 minutes long and specifically designed to enhance learning using real people in real places to learn the standards that prekindergarten children need to know to succeed in school as determined by the Department of Education. KidVision Pre-K targets the skills children need to learn in an entertaining and meaningful format. Please refer to NAEYC’s new position statement on using technology in the early childhood classroom. http://www.naeyc.org/files/naeyc/file/positions/PS_technology_WEB2.pdf

    Are the Take Home Pages coloring pages?

    No, they are literacy prompting worksheets. KidVision Pre-K Take Home Pages serve as an extra literacy-learning bonus included in every unit because literacy learning is a priority. There is a Directions Sheet included in each Take Home Page packet that gives teachers specific directions on how to use the sheet with their children so the literacy skills assessed on the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener are practiced. These skills include letter naming and sounds, listening comprehension, and vocabulary.

    What is the appropriate and intended use of the KidVision Pre-K system?

    The intension of KidVision Pre-K is that it is not a stand-alone training. It is embedded in classroom instructional practices, so that Florida standards are targeted and integrated into curriculum. A teacher may watch several videos at one sitting to earn her in-service hours and CEUs to get them done, but that does not mean that she is not going to use what she has learned to implement new knowledge in the classroom. She is taking away information that is valuable to her job, standards information that she is accountable to teach. Anyone can walk away from a training and that is that. This training is there for her to take the test now, but show the virtual field trip later in the classroom when it fits her curriculum theme and use the lesson plans and assessments then when they benefit her students the most. If the teacher does not have Internet in her classroom she can still use the lesson plans and assessments to target and teach Florida standards with any curriculum.

    What is the difference between the KidVision Pre-K website and the APP?

    The KidVision Pre-K website is for teachers. It is an on-going professional development training for teachers to learn and earn certified in-service hours and CEUs. The KidVision Pre-K APP is for parents. It includes quizzes for kids that promote pre-reading skills. The APP makes it easy for teachers and parents to watch field trips and see lesson plans without the professional development piece included.
