Gateways for Early Educators

Focused on Early Childhood Education and Development

Gateways for Early Educators is your source for training and education. Open to any provider at any level, Gateways supports child care providers and early educators as they progress on their professional development pathways and assists them in improving the delivery of quality child care providers. So, if you want some new ideas for curriculum, to learn more about screening and assessment, to climb another step on the permit matrix, or better market your business - read on because this is the place for YOU!

Gateways for Early Educators has three primary components:

  1. Professional Childhood Development Training

    Ten training topic areas offer an overview of basic skills and knowledge needed for working with young children

  2. Coaching Support

    Our coaches make regular visits to child care providers to offer support, ideas, resources, and technical assistance in both quality improvement and career advancement.

  3. Online Information and Resources

    If you don't see the training you want on our Event Calendar, you can find training opportunities across the County at the Child Care Alliance of Los Angeles. You can also enroll in the California Early Care and Education Workforce Registry or find trainers for staff development at the same time.

Training and technical assistance align with and support the State of California Early Childhood Education Competencies.

Gateways for Early Educators is made possible with funding from First 5 LA through LAUP.
