CDTC provides services, training, technical assistance, and resources to students and professionals working with and for children. In doing so, we help promote professionalism and high quality early care and education programs that benefit California’s children and families.
The Child Development Training Consortium (CDTC) is a statewide program funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division (CDE/CDD) with federal Child Care and Development Quality Improvement funds. The program is administered by the Yosemite Community College District and serves all of California. Since 2002-2003, the CDTC has also received funding from First 5 California. Funding for all program services is limited. All programs listed below are funded by CDE/CDD unless otherwise noted.
The GCC CDTC includes a broad range of early childhood education professionals, including college professors, center directors, mentor teachers, college students, and community members. We meet twice each year to plan and coordinate our role in the training and support of the early childhood education professionals in the community.
