Early Childhood Educators in Massachusetts are required to complete annual professional development course work. Depending on hours worked and if you are in a family child care or center based child care, you will need to complete between 5-20 hours of professional development annually. Keeping in mind that ⅓ of that needs to address diverse learners.
Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care requires educators to meet yearly requirements in the following Massachusetts Core Competency Areas:
Area 1: Understanding the Growth and Development of Children and Youth
Area 2: Guiding and Interacting with Children and Youth
Area 3: Partnering with Families and Communities
Area 4: Health, Safety and Nutrition
Area 5: Learning Environments and Implementing Curriculum
Area 6: Observation, Assessment, and Documentation
Area 7: Program Planning and Development
Area 8: Professionalism and Leadership
For those providers looking to become a Teacher, Lead Teacher, or Director, obtaining your CDA will fulfill your coursework requirements for the EEC Professional Qualifications Certification in Massachusetts.
