Early Learning Professional Development

In collaboration with Solano County school districts, First 5 Solano, Solano Family & Children’s Services and other partners, Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) offers specialized training for early learning professionals. Workshops offered by SCOE are open to Transitional Kindergarten and state-funded preschool teachers, as well as family child care and center-based preschool and child care staff. Training focus on a wide range of programs that support teaching and learning for our youngest learners, including infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children.

Early Learning workshops cover a broad variety of topics, including preschool and Transitional Kindergarten modules of the California Preschool Learning Foundations and Curriculum Framework, special needs and inclusion practices, trauma-informed care, social-emotional development, language and literacy, STEAM-inspired sessions, etc. Specialized training is also provided by the Region 4 California Preschool Instructional Network (CPIN), the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL), and the Program for Infant and Toddler Care (PITC).
