Professional Development Opportunities

Professional Development opportunities for all campus programs/educators tend to be “layered” to allow time to follow up on training experiences with discussion on program and service impacts. Since 2012, the OCCFR has focused on the following topic training areas for professional development: Infant and Family Mental Health, Nature Playscapes and Curriculum, Respectful Infant Care, Appropriate Use of Technology within Early Education Programs, Challenging Behaviors, and Attendance at National Conferences for Directors and Early Educators.

Check the “Grants for Campus Child Care Teachers” for funding to implement new initiatives related to these topics.
