The Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS) trainings will provide participants with an opportunity to understand the WMELS so that they will be able to build a foundation for high-quality care & education for all children from birth to the beginning of 1st grade. Participants learn how to apply the WMELS Performance Standards to determine what children should know & be able to do, plan learning experiences, provide supportive environments & collect data to ensure that all children are learning & making progress.
