Professional Development

The Early Education Programs and Services department offers a number of professional development opportunities on a variety of topics for preschool, infant/toddler teachers and administrators, and family child care providers. 

Our mission is to provide early intervention, professional development, and foster leadership to ensure every child has equitable access to high-quality early education by supporting the individual needs of children, families, and early child care education settings which result in sustainable changes.
