Quality standards drive professional development opportunities

Based on an online survey, this study examines how professional development is implemented in center-based early childhood programs in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and American Samoa. Focusing on eleven professional development supports, it looks at the frequency of the supports offered and whether they strengthen respondents' professional competence, views on the importance of professional development, and job commitment. Findings, implications, and study limitations are discussed.
