P-5 Workforce Development

ZERO TO THREE's P-5 Cross-Sector Core Competencies Training is designed to bring these competencies directly to professionals serving the P-5 population, in order enhance capacity for coordinated, collaborative service delivery.

The ZERO TO THREE Western Office partnered with First 5 LA to develop the Prenatal to Age 5 Workforce Development (P-5WFD) Project in response to the need for cross-sector coordination of services for the P- 5 population. The P-5 WFD Project developed the P-5 Cross-Sector Core Competencies that identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for the professionals working with the P-5 population. The cross-sector core competencies hone in on eight core competency domains essential for all professionals in the P-5 field.

These domains include:

  • Early Childhood Development
  • Family-Centered Practice
  • Relationship-Based Practice
  • Health and Development Risk and Protective Factors
  • Cultural and Linguistic Responsiveness
  • Leadership to Meet Family Needs and Improve Services and Systems
  • Professional and Ethical Practices
  • Service Planning, Coordination, and Collaboration

The P-5 Cross-Sector Core Competencies Training is designed to bring these competencies directly to professionals serving the P-5 population, in order to enhance capacity for coordinated, collaborative service delivery.
