Institute 4 Early Learning
Professional Development at the Institute 4EL

Research shows that increased quality of care requires trained teachers with a higher level of education. As teachers begin moving forward on their career path, the Coalition supports their efforts by providing professional development opportunities.

Here at the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County, we offer a full range of professional development services, educational resources, career advising, and seminars. The intent is to provide robust opportunities to grow professionally in the field of early care and education. We do this by providing a variety of resources that focus on assisting you with strengthening your skills, planning a successful career path and improving the quality of education in early childhood programs throughout Orange County and surrounding communities.   

Why participate in Professional Development
at the Institute 4 EL?

Many Early Childhood educators seek opportunities to grow within the field by furthering their education. Here at the Early Learning Coalition of Orange, we have designed an educational hierarchy that includes multiple levels, local and statewide initiatives, and training to meet your career goals. 

The Institute for Early Learning offers early childhood professionals the opportunities to enhance their evidence-based practice and business acumen in early care and education. We currently use a web-based application that acts as a framework, handling all aspects of the learning process. Our Learning Management System (LMS) manages your courses with course registration, direct payments, certificates, and supplemental professional development resources. The courses offered can be taken face-to-face, hybrid (both face-to-face and online), synchronous, and asynchronous. The duration will vary by topic and will determine the number of in-service hours offered.
