Professional Development System

The Professional Development System (PDS) is designed to increase your understanding and skills as a care provider and early educator. PDS is the gateway to access training and education about child care and early education.

The first step is enrolling in the PDS Registry. Call 2-1-1 or 1-800-926-2588 and ask to be connected with your local CCRC office. Your regional consultant will send you a pre-packet of forms to be completed before you attend PDS orientation.

Attending the PDS Orientation is required to enroll in the PDS Registry. Orientations are available to all child care providers, directors and owners interested in joining the PDS Registry. Orientation offers information about:

  • Early Childhood Care and Education Career Pathway
  • Incentive opportunities available for eligible providers
  • Scholarship and training information
