Local Planning and Advisory Council for Early Care and Education

2018-2019 Professional Development Program (PDP) Application period is CLOSED!

We are happy to announce that for fiscal year 2018-2019, First 5 Contra Costa, the Contra Costa County Office of Education, and the Local Planning & Advisory Council for Early Care and Education (LPC) are continuing to align efforts and blend funding to consolidate professional development opportunities for all Contra Costa early care and education (ECE) professionals.

Our intent is to simplify and streamline professional development and incentive opportunities for our local workforce and to proactively respond and integrate input received from our local ECE workforce to improve access and participation in the Professional Development Program (PDP) activities.
