Early care and education providers spend every day helping children learn and grow. Now it’s their turn!

For nearly 20 years, the Professional Development Program (PDP) has helped Contra Costa’s child care providers advance their education and training in early childhood education, and rewarded them when they do. Child care providers working in Contra Costa County with children birth to age five may be eligible for financial incentives ranging from $300 to $1,250 when they earn six units of college coursework, attend reflective practice seminars, complete training hours, or qualify for lost wages reimbursements.
