The purpose of this article is to describe the results of a teacher–teacher educator collaboration focused on adapting the Center for Research on Education, Diversity, and Excellence (CREDE) standards for Effective Pedagogy for use in early childhood (EC) settings. The CREDE standards are instructional strategies that developed from research on K–12 diverse learners. Participants included 13 preschool teachers and 2 administrators serving 2- to 5-years-olds at a university-based EC center. The authors made changes to criteria for the standards so as to make them more developmentally appropriate, with considerations of language development, a focus on goals that included self management and social skills, and children’s tendencies to be more egocentric and less self-aware. However, the educators generally felt that the CREDE strategies were appropriate for early childhood instruction.
