Competencies Integration Project (CIP)

Faculty from California’s State University and Community Colleges are collaborating to link measurable learning outcomes and California’s new Early Childhood Educators (ECE) Competencies.

CIP is creating a rubric, mapping tool, and process to bridge the ECE Competencies, college courses, and other professional development activities. Join us in transforming the field!


  • The Competencies Integration Project has developed a video to give you a very basic overview of the Early Childhood Educator Competencies adopted by California in Fall of 2011.
