Welcome to the Gee Whiz Cohort Program….

a place for providers and Quality Specialists to connect and learn.

The purpose of this cohort is to support providers as they use the Gee Whiz curriculum as well as provide information about early childhood education, parental communication, child engagement and so much more!  This cohort is also designed to support Quality Specialists in the important work they do with providers in the field.

The Gee Whiz Cohort will meet via webinar once per month.  The webinar information will be shared via email.  Please follow this link to register to join the Gee Whiz Cohort:

This will ensure you are notified about the next cohort webinar.   We plan for the webinars to be around the 20th of each month after both units for the next month are posted.

Each month, the Gee Whiz Cohort webinar will cover many things:

  1. We will go over each of the new units.  We will explore the components as well as dig into the lesson plans.

  2. We will also focus on one of the developmental areas during each webinar and link that to the current units.

  3. Additionally, we will help you practice adapting the Gee Whiz lesson plans for different developmental levels and special needs.

  4. Finally, there will be plenty of time for Q&A.

Each webinar will last between 1 and 1.5 hours.  At this time, we can certainly provide certificates of attendance if requested via email after the conclusion of the webinar.  This applies to everyone including Quality Specialists.

The Gee Whiz Cohort is a supportive group made up of folks just like yourself!  We all know that we learn from one another and the cohort will support this concept.  In fact, as the cohort gets more established, we may invite providers using the Gee Whiz curriculum to serve as guest presenters/contributers!  If you would be interested in this role, please let us know by sending an email to

The Gee Whiz Cohort will hold their initial webinar on August 20, 2019.  Here is the registration link for that webinar.
