The Region 3 Professional Development Partnership (R3P) is comprised of representatives from community agencies, public schools and colleges who have collaborated to offer a wide variety of professional development opportunities for the early childhood workforce, and is funded by the Educator and Provider Supports grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care (EEC).
If you would like more information on the EPS grant, please visit this page from the Department of Early Education and Care.
EEC's Region 3 consists of 63 cities and towns in northeastern Massachusetts. The R3P utilizes three "Hubs" in the cities of Lawrence, Lowell and Lynn to accommodate the educators and providers living or working in proximity to the Hubs.
