BBF PPD Committee

Michael

The mission of the Building Bright Futures (BBF) Professional Preparation and Development (PPD) Committee is to develop, coordinate, and promote a comprehensive system of quality learning opportunities for current and prospective early childhood and afterschool professionals. One of the BBF statewide committees, the BBF PPD committee works to equip the early childhood workforce across sectors in the early childhood system with the common knowledge and skills needed to support children’s optimal learning and development and family stability.

The committee helps to lead and develop the system by ensuring appropriate representation of voices across the early childhood and afterschool spectrum, including voices representing K-3, Children’s Integrated Services, Early Childhood Special Education, Afterschool direct service and others. PPD meets monthly for 2.5 hours with an annual full day planning retreat. There are 15-18 identified representative members of PPD, though all meetings remain open to anyone who wishes to participate. Meetings are held monthly in either Rutland or Montpelier.
