Teacher Resources

The Provider Connection

As a community leader in Palo Alto, PACCC operates The Provider Connection to serve the education, training and professional development needs of teachers of young children.

The Provider Connection is a teacher resource center/lending library providing materials and equipment to enhance the teaching practices of professionals working in our community with young children. It offers workshops on current topics as well as CPR, and is open to all community members including parents and grandparents.
