Professional Development and Community Outreach - Cyert Center for Early Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Professional Development

Since 1997, The Program for Collaborative Learning has offered a series of professional development opportunities to support the early childhood educator's understanding of the philosophy and principles of the Reggio Emilia approach.


In addition, the mission of the PCL is to promote life long learning for early childhood educators, administrators, art educators, architects, designers, and those who are interested in the early childhood profession.


As part of the Cyert Center for Early Education, the PCL is a vehicle for sharing the work that takes place within the school community. Presentations by the Cyert Center educators are offered at our annual Visitation Day.
