Gateways for Early Educators

Every year, Child Care Resource Center works with Early Care and Education (ECE) professionals to help them reach their professional development goals. With the help of the Gateways for Early Educators™ (Gateways) Passport, ECE professionals are now able to track their growth and development.

The Gateways Passport is a professional development pathway with 12 focus areas aligned with the California ECE Competencies, which serve to strengthen and improve the quality of professional development opportunities available to the ECE workforce. To complete a Gateways Passport, ECE professionals must attend at least two qualifying 2-hour trainings in each focus area (48 total hours of training).

Participants who complete their Gateways Passport are acknowledged at the Annual Karen Kaye Award of Achievement Celebration. This award was named to honor Karen Kaye, whose vision paved the way for the development of the Gateways for Early Educators™ initiative. ECE professionals can complete up to three Passports.

To begin your journey to earning your Gateways Passport, join the ECE Workforce Registry.   

When you sign-up for a FREE Registry account, you will be able to:

  • Search, view and register for Gateways eligible trainings.
  • Track your training hours and check your progress with a personalized virtual Gateways Passport.

For questions, please contact us at 818-717-1042 or [email protected].
