Cultivate Learning is committed to helping educators improve their practice in meaningful ways.


Our objective at Cultivate Learning is to create engaging and relevant, evidenced-based resources, training, and professional development opportunities for early learning and expanded learning opportunities professionals. Explore some of our professional learning opportunities created for family child care providers, early childhood educators, after school providers, coaches, program directors, and educators in institutions of higher education.

Coaching, the most intensive form of professional development, supports the collaborative relationship of coaches and educators in improving child outcomes through the implementation of effective teaching practices. Our Practice-Based Coaching Framework offers multiple opportunities and tools, including a certificate program, the Coaching Companion (a video feedback and annotation tool) and a range of trainings, consultations, resources and more.

ELO is our collaboration with out-of-school programs to provide professional development opportunities for educators who work with children and youth in summer camps, youth centers, sports organizations, after-school programming, and more.

The Partnership for Pre-K Improvement (PPI) is a sustained partnership and study that focuses on improving the quality of state-funded pre-kprograms. We use this knowledge to improve early learning state and nationwide with the aim to create a statewide standard evaluation through case studies and tool development.

EarlyEdU is our commitment to transforming early childhood teacher preparation through partnerships with institutes of higher education, early childhood researchers, workforce development teams across the nation, and philanthropy. Together we are creating credits that count and degrees that matter.

Filmed in talk show format, Circle Time Magazine is a professional development web series and magazine for early childhood educators. Our hosts and guests discuss important topics related to the work providers do with young children every day. Receive STARS credits by completing the knowledge checks and evaluations at the end of each episode.

Meaningful Makeover is a multilingual web series which features dynamic makeovers of real family child care homes in  Washington State. Watch our educational environment experts as they team up with providers to show the secrets and science behind the most impactful early learning spaces.

Our institutes with the EarlyEdU Alliance and Early Achievers are professional development opportunities that bring together experts in the fields of early childhood education and expanded learning opportunities to share research, best practices, and resources.
