OCDEL Professional Development Survey

The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) is requesting the input of directors and owners of certified child care programs in the Professional Development Survey.


Responses to the online survey will assist OCDEL in understanding the number of staff who will need Pediatric First Aid and CPR training in the upcoming year, and to understand providers’ knowledge of the role of Professional Development Organizations (PDOs). The survey can be completed in less than ten minutes and collected information about:

    • the number of teaching staff at a child care program,
    • the number of staff certified in Pediatric First Aid and CPR, and
    • awareness of and connections to Early Childhood Education PDOs.

Complete the Survey

Directors and owners of programs holding a DHS Certificate of Compliance are encouraged to complete the online survey. Survey responses must be submitted by Thursday, December 17, 2020.
