Early Childhood - Professional Competencies

Wisconsin Early Childhood Professional Development Competencies

The Wisconsin competencies for professionals and training and technical assistance professionals,  were developed to create a common thread of Professional Development expectations across the variety of system partners (Higher Education, Child Care, Head Start, 4 & 5 year-old Kindergarten, Special Education, Child Welfare, Home Visiting, Health & Mental Health, Afterschool, Advocacy, and others) for the ultimate benefit of children and families in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Core Competencies for Professionals Working with Young Children and the Their Families  set expectations for what the workforce should know (content) and be able to do (skills) in a respectful & competent manner (attitudes) in their roles working with and/or on behalf of children and their families.
