You may only apply once for THIS scholarship lottery. If you have applied for previous lotteries, you must also apply for this one.

  • If you ARE NOT A MEMBER of the Charts-A-Course Registry, a Registry account will be set up for you as part of the award process, if you are awarded, so there is no need to also set one up at this time.

  • If you ARE A MEMBER of the Charts-A-Course Registry, and wish to be a part of the scholarship lottery, you must apply for scholarship assistance using the link below.


WELCOME to Connecticut’s Early Childhood Professional Registry*.

The Office of Early Childhood is pleased to offer this tool to Connecticut’s early childhood professionals and programs for young children. The Registry has been in operation since 2007 and currently has over 24,000 participants in roles including teaching staff members, program administrators, trainers and consultants.

  • As a participant in the Registry, you will be able to build a profile of your employment and education (that will be verified). This profile will be accepted by many partners and programs as documentation of your qualifications. In addition, you can take advantage of tools such as the Resume Builder, licensing Head Teacher Request, Employment History, Scholarship Request, and more.
  • The Registry offers program administrators a system to capture the employment and qualifications of staff. Reports can be generated and used as verification to funders and accrediting agencies, and creating professional development plans.
  • As a state, the Registry provides a look at Connecticut’s early childhood workforce. This data has tremendous potential to bring about improvements to the field. By being part of the Registry, you can help to make this happen and raise public awareness about important issues such as the need for better compensation and professional development access.

I welcome your participation in the Registry and hope you will give us your feedback as we develop and improve this site.
