ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), a distance learning professional development and certificate provider, offers CCEI110A: Indoor Safety in the Early Childhood Setting as an online no-cost trial child care training course to new CCEI users during the month of November.

This course introduces early childhood professionals to indoor safety standards in an early childhood setting. Topics covered include toy safety, poison control, the development of appropriate play space, controlling high traffic areas in the center, and other safety standards. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to identify common indoor injuries and identify appropriate ways to prevent these injuries. Students will also learn about the basic components of toy safety, potential safety hazards with specific equipment and ways in which children may be exposed to poisons.

“While most accidents occur in an outdoor environment, it’s imperative to be aware of the many safety risks at play inside the classroom,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “This course provides key information on the safest and most effective practices to ensure children’s safety inside the classroom.”

This one-hour training course is available as a trial course to new users with CCEI account creation in November. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can enroll in professional development courses at no additional cost when logged in to their CCEI account. Users without subscriptions can purchase child care training courses as block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
