January 2024 Newsletter – Promoting Executive Function Skills

Happy New Year! Some of you will begin the new year with a goal to improve in one way or another. As early childhood educators, children are near to our minds in all we do. We may not only want to improve ourselves, but also, make things better for the children and families in our care! This month’s newsletter is an opportunity to do just that by learning the latest information or refreshing older knowledge.

This month, we will discuss Executive Function (EF) skills, what they are, and why they are important. Additionally, the newsletter will explore strategies to utilize with children, families, and coworkers that will support the development of EF skills. EF skills are just like other developmental skills that benefit from consistency between the early childhood setting and at home, so be sure to share this information with families.

We are looking forward to starting the new year off with this important topic – Happy 2024 from the CCEI Team!
