CCEI Has Provided Over $100,000 of In-Kind Benefits for Head Start Staff Professional Development

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved, nationally accredited, online child care and education training institution, is proud to announce that over $100,000 of in-kind credit has been provided for Head Start staff training.

ChildCare Education Institute has served the Head Start community since CCEI’s inception and continues to provide quality online coursework that allows providers to meet multiple training requirements, while contributing to a program’s in-kind goals. In addition to using CCEI coursework to fulfill the annual minimum clock hours of professional development, Head Start sites utilize CCEI’s online Child Development Associate (CDA) coursework and other programs. The CCEI Early Childhood Credential (ECC) can also be used to meet Head Start requirements for positions that require the minimum of a CDA Credential. Head Start staff members have appreciated the wealth of training topics in CCEI’s library, including coursework on inclusion, health and safety, early literacy, family communication, and much more. Coursework is self-paced and competency-based, which facilitates retention, and enrollment is available online at any time.

“CCEI works closely with the Head Start community in order to extend quality training opportunities that directly affect early learning environments,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “We cannot overstate how important it is for all young children that their teachers and caregivers have access to high-quality, effective early childhood education and training. CCEI is proud to help in that effort.”
