Educator and Provider Support Region 6 is a regional partnership that works to achieve positive outcomes for all children ages 0-14 (up to age 16 for children with special needs) through professional development and program improvement resources for early childhood educators and providers. In partnership with its collaborators, EPS offers CEU courses, college courses, program focus coaching, technical assistance, QRIS support, and Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) support.
EPS is funded by the Department of Early Education and Care in Massachusetts. The EEC funding for professional development is shared by 5 regions across the state. Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) Inc. is the lead agency for the EPS grant in Region 6.
