The Picard Center would like to acknowledge the recent work and successes of Dr. Raymond Biggar.
The Picard Center is now in the spring phase of the 2017-18 CLASS™ observation schedule. This spring, the CLASS-ACT team continues to conduct toddler and pre-kindergarten CLASS™ observations in early childhood settings across the State of Louisiana. In addition to the regularly assigned observations, the Picard Center is conducting a small infant pilot to assess the quality of teacher-infant interactions in childcare centers. To date, the Picard Center completion rate is over fifty-eight percent and the CLASS-ACT team is on target to reach their goal of conducting 3,860 CLASS™ observations by May 2018.
