Professional Development Workshops + Training

At the CCRR, we offer dozens of professional development opportunities every year, from fun, interactive workshops to informative and engaging multi-day courses. Working with a long list of experienced facilitators and early learning experts, we strive to cover a broad range of topics. Sessions will highlight emerging trends in the child care field and reinforce core ideas at the heart of early childhood education.

Unless stated otherwise, our training opportunities count towards the 40 hours required for ECE renewal. Participants will receive a certificate of completion stating their hours received.
