PDP's Early Childhood Education and Training Program has developed and delivered high-quality training to early care educators in New York State since 1992. This training prepares educators with the latest information on child development from birth through age 12, and demonstrates how to put this knowledge into practice to create environments and experiences that promote optimal growth and development.
With educational backgrounds in Early Childhood Education, PDP staff members have worked in child day care, Head Start and elementary school settings. They have increased the knowledge and skills of early educators through videoconferences, classroom training, curricula and supporting video content on early childhood education topics, including the principles of childhood development. PDP is currently developing a series of interactive e-learning courses that will provide early care educators with other quality training opportunities.
