Improve Children’s Language and Literacy Development through Early Literary Exposure

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an accredited, online child care training institution, offers new users the opportunity to try online learning with the trial course CCEI330: Books and Beyond: Language Development in Young Children at no cost in October, in recognition of National Book Month.

Books and Beyond introduces methods for creating a learning environment that promotes language development using a variety of speaking and listening activities. Upon successful completion of this course, CCEI students will be able to identify the four main types of language, define and differentiate between “oracy” and literacy, implement language activities in the classroom, and explain the importance of a language-rich classroom environment. Coursework is self-paced, and accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

CCEI330 is available to new CCEI users as a trial course awarded upon account creation during October. Account holders without an active, annual training subscription may purchase this course through online enrollment. This beginner level course awards 0.1 IACET CEU.

“A dedicated focus on literacy skills within early care programs leads to stronger communication skills in children, which are imperative life skills for personal and professional success,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “Educators will get great ideas from this course that will help them build a language-rich learning environment.”
