This study examined the system for professional development that exists in West Virginia for education staff who teach in the West Virginia Pre-K program. This information should be used to increase the understanding of policy makers and early childhood system planners within a framework of policy areas as described by the National Association for the Education of Young Children in Workforce Designs: A Policy Blueprint for State Early Childhood Professional Development Systems to support quality improvement. While several components of a comprehensive professional development system are present, further coordination and alignment is necessary to meet the diverse needs of individual early childhood education professionals working with and on behalf of young children enrolled in West Virginia Pre-K.
