Preparation and training for professionals in early childhood education


The skills of the people who educate and care for California’s young children in day care or preschool significantly affect the quality of their experience and their developmental outcomes. This chapter describes the training requirements for professionals who work with children 0-5 years, research and expert opinion on effective training, recent systematic analyses and recommendations for California, and the implications of the recommendations for California policies related to the preparation of the early childhood (EC) workforce.
