California Preschool Instructional Network

The California Preschool Instructional Network (CPIN) is funded by the California Department of Social Services, Child Care and Development Division and has provided high-quality professional learning, technical assistance, and support to California’s preschool program administrators and teachers through its statewide network since 2004.

Through regional communities of practice (CP) and a series of professional learning experiences, CPIN promotes promising practices in early learning, family engagement, and equity and emphasizes a whole-child approach. 

Organized into 11 state regions, CPIN instructors provide research-based teaching and learning strategies that are age and developmentally appropriate and highlight inclusive practices and support for ALL children. Instruction incorporates adult learning theories and is intentional, reflective, and interactive with hands-on learning and time for planning.
