ECAAP relies on an extensive network of partners to help build a strong workforce of early childcare providers in Kansas.
- Commerce Workforce Services links businesses, job seekers, and educational institutions to ensure that Kansas employers can find skilled workers.
- The Council for Professional Recognition provides for the interim CDA credential required for ECAAP. Learn how it works with ECAAP.
- Educational Partners provide opportunities to fulfil the education requirements of the Apprenticeship program.
- School-to-Registered Apprenticeship (STRA) may be linked to an employer’s approved Registered Apprenticeship program for high school juniors or seniors. It could connect a Registered Apprenticeship program sponsor and students in a comparable high school curriculum resulting in a career pathway encompassing skills and learning. Students and employers all benefit.
- The Kansas Early Learning Guidelines & Standards document has been developed for use by child care providers, early childhood teachers, administrators, families and others who provide
care to young children. The overall purpose of this document is to provide a general
overview of the skills, knowledge, and abilities young children have and can learn
with the help of caring and knowledgeable adults.
