If you are currently working in early education or out-of-school time in an EEC-licensed center-based program or family child care home in Massachusetts, you will need to register for a Professional Qualifications Registry number to comply with the regulations issued in January 2010. Educators, including assistants, who work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, or school age children in EEC-licensed settings are required to register and update their registration annually. EEC is also asking educators in programs that are not subject to EEC licensure but that are participating in EEC's Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) pilot register by that date.
In order to participate in EPS trainings you must have a PQR number.
Please note that having an EEC teacher certification does not mean that you are already registered
