Early Childhood Educator Professional Development Day

October 25, 2019

Understanding the importance of ongoing professional learning and development, CAFRA has designated the 4th Friday of each October (October 25, 2019) as an Early Childhood Educator Professional Development Day. This will be a day where ECE’s have the opportunity to learn together, unite under the common focus of continuous professional learning and become stronger as a community.

Substantial research on high quality Early Learning and Child Care programs worldwide clearly demonstrates that the greatest indicator of program quality is the knowledge, education and capacity of the Educators who work with children and families. In other words, educational preparation and the ongoing learning of Educators remains central to the quality of Early Learning and Child Care.
