Research & Best Practices

Beginning in 2011, PEACH began its work by researching the history of professional development initiatives, identifying existing best practices, examining the current landscape and describing a variety of programs, organizations and institutions of higher education (IHE) in California and Los Angeles County that support the ECE Workforce. In 2012 PEACH developed a series of six papers to describe the current status of professional development programs IHEs in Los Angeles County as well as other elements of the professional preparation of the current and future ECE workforce.
PEACH continues to identify research and best practices that contribute to the professional development of the current and future ECE Workforce. In 2012 PEACH developed a series of six papers to describe the current status of professional development programs, IHEs, as well as other elements of the professional preparation of the current and future ECE workforce in Los Angeles County. Additionally, it is anticipated that the information and analysis contained in the PEACH White Papers, as well as the Research and Best Practices presented here, will prove useful to California educators, policymakers and other related colleagues as well as their counterparts beyond state borders.
