Professional Development

Professional development involves both improving professional skills for participants and preparing participants for a future in early care and education. Through professional development programs, early care and education professionals are able to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to provide quality child care in Kentucky.

The Division of Child Care administers a wide array of professional development programs, non-college scholarships, awards and mini-grants to the extent funds are available. Please visit the Professional Development Programs Web page for a full listing of programs and contact information.
