Building Dreams. Building Brains. Building the Future. ECE, the Foundation.

The Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE) Educational Services Division assists early learning educators across the region in creating inclusive and nurturing early education classrooms that support the development of young children. Early learning experiences help build a child's educational foundation, giving them the tools and skills they need to be successful in school, careers, and interpersonal relationships. MCOE's Early Care and Education team provides professional development opportunities to Monterey County early educators and regional colleagues at no cost.
