Vermont's Comprehensive System for Personnel Development

“Integrating, aligning and coordinating Vermont’s Early Childhood system
to support and retain qualified personnel.”

For a great introduction into what a CSPD is, check out our Prezi presentation.

Vermont’s Early Childhood Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) prepares and supports professionals to effectively engage with children, families and systems to realize the promise of every child.


Vermont’s CCV-hosted system aligns, integrates and coordinates personnel development to equitably prepare, support and retain qualified personnel across settings and disciplines.

“A comprehensive system of personnel development (CSPD) is the primary mechanism by which the state ensures that infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities and their families, are provided services by knowledgeable, skilled, competent, and highly qualified personnel, and that sufficient numbers of these personnel are available in the state to meet service needs.”

“No single agency with a mission involving humans can accomplish important tasks by itself for all of its clients. Autonomy in organizational leadership is an obsolete concept, since autonomy only gets you isolation, and to be isolated in a fragmented world is to lack the resources you need to accomplish your mission.”  Sid Gardner
