Developed by First 5 California, CARES Plus is a statewide professional development program for early educators to improve the quality of early learning programs by focusing on increasing the quality, effectiveness, and retention of early educators. Its main objectives are to improve both the quality of early learning programs, and ultimately, improve young children’s learning and developmental outcomes.

Requirements must be completed during the program year and include completing online training in the Classroom Assessment Scoring System™ (CLASS™) and a one-hour online training on the dangers of second-hand smoke. Developing and updating a professional development plan at the beginning and end of the program year is also required to earn a stipend.
