The McCormick Tribune Center for Early Childhood Leadership recently concluded a study to understand more about the different kinds of professional development experiences offered in center-based early care and education programs. The research sought to answer three questions: 1) What professional development opportunities are most frequently offered in centers? 2) Do professional development opportunities offered vary by program type? 3) Is the level of education of the director related to the provision of professional development offered to teachers?
