CPIN Core Curriculum

The CPIN Core Curriculum is a series of online, fee-based facilitated courses available to teacher leaders, administrators and coaches to deepen knowledge about the preschool learning foundations and curriculum framework. The courses are designed for individuals who have demonstrated a base-level of knowledge of the foundations and framework. The in-depth coursework provides information and experiences that enable ECE leaders, administrators, coaches and professional learning specialists to decrease confusion and frustration implementing the variety of resources available to the early childhood workforce by understanding how the preschool learning foundations and curriculum framework are based in research and connect to all other evidenced-based resources including curriculum, assessment, and other teacher tools.

Once completing the course, participants may choose to further their knowledge and become a CPIN certified trainer. 

Each learning domain course:

  • is offered yearly and occurs over a 4-6-week time span;
  • requires a prerequisite completion of nine online overview modules on the preschool learning foundations and curriculum framework*;
  • has a fee of $200;
  • includes online readings, videos, discussion, assignments and reflection; and
  • is facilitated by an early childhood education expert.

*Prerequisite modules are available for free on California Early Childhood Online
