Wyoming has created the Pathway to Professional Development. This initiative includes two certifications and a credential in early childhood education. Coursework is aligned with the requirements for CDA completion. The pathway also leads to degreed programs in higher education and the State is currently working to establish articulation agreements. Along the way, participants are rewarded with financial incentives as they complete each certificate and credential.
