Early Care & Learning Professionals Series (ECLP)

This professional development opportunity is designed to support a workforce that works directly with children in early childhood care settings. This training has been specifically designed for early childhood caregivers who provide center based and in-home services to families with children ages 0-4. The goal of this training series is to bring awareness to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how implementing nurturing and best practices to supplement the knowledge you already have will raise awareness and commitment to promoting safe, stable, nurturing relationships with children and their families.

The ECLP series was an 8-week program held on Saturdays compiled of (5) 4-hour workshops and (2) on-site video coaching sessions to make up the 8-week program. This training series has ended.  If you were a program participant, please contact the office for current training opportunities.
