Until it’s completion in 2017, the California Department of Education Faculty Initiative Project (FIP) supported early childhood professionals in preservice preparation programs with resources examining CDE initiatives and publications. The FIP also provided opportunities to integrate content into unit-bearing coursework. Key CDE materials in the Instructional Guides created as part of the FIP are aligned with core early childhood education/child development curriculum in the California Community College and California State University systems.

The collection FIP Instructional Guides, PowerPoint slides, and other instructional supports can now be found on the California Community College Early Childhood Educators CDE FIP webpage.
