The Faculty Initiative Project (FIP) is funded by the California Department of Education’s Early Learning and Care Division (CDE-ELCD) and is a part of WestEd’s Center for Child and Family Studies. The purpose of the FIP is to align and integrate essential content and competencies of key CDE-ELCD materials and initiatives with core early childhood education curriculum of the California Community College and the California State University systems.
