      CDE Early Learning


      The Quality Improvement Office (QIO) of the Early Education and Support Division (EESD) of the CDE provides high-quality professional development and training activities for early education program staff and administrators. In collaboration with institutions of higher education, early learning teachers and program administrators are preparing our youngest children for on-going school success. The early learning workforce is provided additional professional development throughout their careers related to the vast needs of young children.

      The resources highlighted here will support local education agencies in developing and enhancing their own transitional kindergarten programs. Additional resources are available for infant and toddler, three-year old programs, and School Age programs.

      Discussion boards are places where participants can connect with their colleagues, share thoughts, and collaborate.

      For additional information, please contact our offices at: EarlyEducation@cde.ca.gov
