New Staff Training

Welcome to PSESD Early Learning! Regardless of your role and site location, you will be completing New Staff Training courses online. You will receive an email with instructions for logging into our online learning system.

In addition to the online trainings you complete, you wil attend 3 face-to-face New Staff Training sessions which are designed to support and enhance what you learned online. Details about dates, time, locations, and links to register for each training can be found on the Training and Meeting Calendar.

There are two opportunities each month for the face-to-face New Staff Training sessions. Choose the one that best meets your need, and be sure to check with your supervisor about what works best for your site.

Please register for the next session once you are hired — you will be welcomed and will benefit from attendance at any point you begin attending.
