Get Child Care Training on Caring for Infants and Toddlers with CCEI Online Professional Development
ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), a distance learning professional development and certificate provider, is proud to provide a wide selection of online training courses to support the dynamic needs of Infant and Toddler teachers and caregivers in the early care and education industry.
The first three years are critical to a child’s development. Infants and toddlers need special care and guidance to ensure optimal physical, cognitive, and social-emotional growth. Research shows that the quality of care an infant or toddler receives has a direct impact on the child’s future. CCEI offers a wide selection of Infant and Toddler courses to give caregivers the information to apply research-based, developmentally appropriate practices to promote the safety, health, and happiness for our youngest children. Topics include Brain Development, Positive Guidance, Curriculum, Safety, Early Language and Literacy Development, Overview of the ITERS-R Rating Scale, and more. Infant and Toddler Care courses range from one to three clock-hours, and each clock-hour awards 0.1 IACET CEU upon successful completion.
"The first three years is the most important developmental time period in a child’s life,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “It is critical that those caring for infants and toddlers understand this and have the framework to provide the best care and support to children in their early years."
