In June, National Safety Month, ChildCare Education Institute is offering child care professionals the opportunity to learn about outdoor safety in the early childhood setting by completing CCEI110B – Outdoor Safety in the Early Childhood Setting, at no cost.
In the United States, over 200,000 children visit hospital emergency rooms each year as a result of playground injuries. The majority of injuries are due to children dropping to the ground from playground equipment. CCEI110B: Outdoor Safety in the Early Childhood Setting provides child care staff information they need to create a safe and fun outdoor learning environment.
Students completing this one-clock-hour online course will be awarded 0.1 IACET CEU and receive a certificate of completion. Participants will learn:
- To identify common outdoor-related injuries to children
- Appropriate strategies for preventing outdoor injuries
