The participants were five early childhood preservice students seeking dual certification.

The Early Childhood Professional Mentoring Group (ECPMG) was established to develop a forum of support for recent graduates of the authors' university's Masters programs in Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education. Moreover, this group was established to create a process for exploring and evaluating the ways that the university's programs are preparing professionals for practice. In order to gain insight into the process and the value of the group, throughout its 1st full academic year, the authors, as cofacilitators, conducted a 45-minute debriefing session after each monthly meeting. During these sessions, the authors reflected on the group's dynamics, topics or themes presented, and their own ways of participating, collaborating, and making meaning of the experience.
