Professional Development and Training: Institute for Early Learning


The Office for Children's Institute for Early Learning offers classes for the child care community to help ensure child care that is safe, healthy, and contributes to children's overall success. Our classes also help meet the training requirements child care professionals need to maintain their license or permit.

The Office for Children's Institute for Early Learning registration process takes place on a monthly basis. Registration for professional development classes for early childhood educators will be available at 7:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month (with the exception of the month of November) for classes that begin the following month. (Classes that begin in November and December will be available for registration in October.) Registration forms that are faxed or mailed will be processed between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. on the opening day of registration. Forms that arrive after that time will be processed the following morning. .
