Many of you are familiar with and have attended CDE FIP sessions housed at WestEd for several years until completion in 2017. The 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.

CDE has approved the CCCECE website to house the FIP Instructional Guides for ongoing faculty use. Check out the collection of FIP Instructional Guides, PowerPoints, and other instructional supports at the CCCECE CDE FIP webpage (
