Prepare for Upcoming Grant Opportunities in the PD Registry

The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) plans to administer upcoming grant opportunities through Pennsylvania’s Professional Development (PD) Registry.


There are steps early childhood (ECE) professionals and programs can complete now to prepare for grant opportunities. All ECE professionals should:

  1. Create an account in the PD Registry

  2. Complete their profile

  3. Add their employment

Directors and/or owners should complete the steps above for themselves and assist their staff to complete them as well. Directors must also verify all staff who have added their employment to their profile and are able to invite any staff who have not added their employment. Verifying employment is important to ensure everyone is eligible for upcoming grant opportunities in the PD Registry.

To learn more about the PD Registry and access additional resources, visit the Pennsylvania Key website.
