Duluth, GA/ May 2, 2011 – ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), a nationally accredited and IACET approved distance training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care industry, offers new users the trial course CCEI330: Books and Beyond: Language Development in Young Children at no cost for the month of May, in honor of Get Caught Reading Month and National Children’s Book Week.
The development of language and early literacy skills are major goals in early childhood education. This essential course introduces developmentally appropriate strategies and classroom methods for promoting vocabulary building through speaking, reading, writing, and listening.
“While language introduction is typically initiated at home, early caregivers play an essential role in a child’s language development. The skills acquired in the early stages of development are the foundation of future academic achievement. This course focuses on teaching caregivers how to incorporate language and literacy activities into the learning environment,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.
Online learning is a great way for busy educators to get their professional development needs met. CCEI330 is available to new CCEI users, at no cost in May.
