Planning, Reflection & Evaluation


Planning, Reflection, and Evaluation (PRE) is 1 of the 12 content areas identified within the 2014 WI Core Competencies for Professionals Working with Young Children and their Families. This competency focuses on professionals examining their own thoughts, attitudes, feelings, actions, strengths, and challenges, and applying increased knowledge, skills, and dispositions when providing high-quality programs and services.

Early care & education professionals need to be able to think critically about their work by self-reflecting & self-evaluating their skills & practices. In doing so, they gain an understanding of how their individual histories impact children & families in their care. When professionals have an awareness of their self-care & professional growth needs, they can actively plan their own professional development & seek employment options that match their strengths & interests.
