The Center provides a wide variety of professional development (PD) opportunities specifically for RIDE Pre-K program staff, including topic-based PD sessions, communities of practice, and the annual Pre-K program kick-off and end-of-year wrap-up. Pre-K staff can also participate in other Center PD offerings, which include participants from outside the RIDE Pre-K program.
Participants register for PD events through the Center’s PD online registration system.
