Early childhood education and child care settings have the potential to support parents and promote children’s cognitive, social, and emotional development, with likely long-term positive impacts well beyond school readiness. This chapter describes the development and pilot testing of a parallel program to Triple P, the Positive Early Childhood Education Program, a professional development and learning program designed for early childhood educators and carers. Key considerations in applying such programs in the early education setting are discussed, including awareness of local regulations, fit with early learning philosophies, and developing an environment that promotes partnerships between educators and parents. Parameters for professional development in the sector are also explored, such as online learning and opportunities for practice and coaching in the context of a busy early learning setting.
