New Staff Training

Welcome to PSESD Early Learning! Regardless of your role and site location, you will be completing New Staff Training courses online. Just follow this link to get to our online classes website.
If you are hired at the beginning of the year, you will be attending up to 4 face-to-face New Staff Training sessions that are designed to support and enhance what you will learn 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.

If you are hired any time before December, please register for the next session — you will be welcomed and will benefit from attendance at any point you begin attending.
