Penn Consulting provides professional staff development and in service training for early childhood educators throughout the nation. We are an approved professional development vendor for Georgia Department of Education's Office of Professional Learning and our courses are approved by Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in a bid to ensure the safety and health of our students and staff we have closed the office and taken all face-to-face courses onto a LIVE videoconferencing platform. Bright from the Start has expanded the DECAL Scholars SCHOLARSHIPS program to aid ECE professionals who would like to take the 120 clock-hour CDA coursework online. SCHOLARSHIPS will cover many of the fees for registered course participants. You may remit a payment using a credit or debit card, or via Paypal credit financing at or click the appropriate registration button below.
