    Overview: The Challenging Teachers Institute is a dynamic, high impact week-long residential course, designed to develop the knowledge and skills of teachers and administrators needed to create optimal learning experiences for young children. The Institute promotes a unique blend of content, process, and reflection.

The library includes over 2,500 professional books, specialized periodicals, a comprehensive collection of video tapes, and a computer lab with internet access. To bring new perspectives to participant investigations, the Art and Drama Studios transform abstract ideas into unexpected discoveries.
