The need for professional development is universal, whatever a person's profession. Professionals must continually enrich their knowledge and increase their sense of professionalism over the course of their careers so as to implement current research-based practice. Early childhood professional development brings to the forefront the significance of the early years for children's learning and development and highlights the central role early childhood educators play in children's successful outcomes. The purpose of this article is to help early childhood teachers recognize the importance of their professional development and to encourage them to be proactive about their own personal and professional growth and development.
