Head Start & Early Head Start Team

There are many resources available for online learning and development. The Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center, ECLKC, has created an area that makes professional development more accessible for those in Head Start. Create a free account using your @gccsa.org email and get familiar with your source of HS Professional Development.

Individualized Professional Development Portfolio (iPD)

This platform was created to support ongoing professional development for staff in Head Start and child care settings. It contains accessible, self-paced modules of learning, based on staff roles and interests. This is a great way to guide self-learning and development.
The process of creating your own iPD is easy. See the following “Getting Started Guide”, watch the video in the ‘iPD Portfolio Platform”, then start learning!



We work to provide our children and families with high-quality teaching and learning environments, with family engagement, through communication and learning connections.
A foundation for future success is the Head Start experience.
