California ECE Workforce Registry

What is the California Early Care and Education Workforce Registry?

The registry is an efficient, web-based system designed to verify and securely store and track the employment, training, and education accomplishments of early childhood care and education (ECE) teachers and providers. Participation in the registry provides the opportunity to be part of a statewide data system for all early care and education professionals.

In partnership with the CA ECE Workforce Registry, Gateways for Early Educators is a professional development system of training workshops offered by the Child Care Alliance of Los Angeles resource and referral agencies.

The Passport is a professional development pathway with 12 topic areas aligned with the California ECE Competencies and is completed when a participant attends at least two trainings in each topic area.
