Early Childhood Professional Development Workshops

Gateway to the Arts and its Western Pennsylvania Wolf Trap program offer a variety of hands-on, participatory professional development workshops throughout the year, specially designed for early childhood practitioners. Sessions in dance, music, drama, and visual arts are taught by professional teaching artists. Emphasis is on developmentally appropriate practice for children ages 3-5. All workshops align with Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Standards and the Core Knowledge Competencies for Early Childhood and School-Age Caregivers. Act 48 and PQAS credit hours available.
