Early Childhood: Professional Development

VPM supports the career-long learning that professional development provides for early educators and caregivers.

VPM PBS KIDS Edcamp provides professional development by allowing educators to serve as the leaders and experts that they are. This un-conference is an opportunity for educators to identify the learning opportunities that are most valuable to them. A time of collaboration and interaction encourages new relationships and the sharing of challenges and "best practice."

We are looking forward to collaborating with more community partners on future VPM PBS KIDS Edcamps in Central Virginia/Greater Richmond, The Shenandoah Valley and Charlottesville areas.

For more information on VPM PBS KIDS Edcamp or to host a VPM PBS KIDS Edcamp for your organization, please contact us.

Self-paced Learning for Teachers

PBS KIDS offers a FREE special collection of flexible self-paced learning to help inspire teachers and provide support for the classroom. Choose from several learning experiences designed to spark new ideas and expand your skill set—you may also be able to earn between one to three professional development credit hours.
