ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online child care training provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is proud to introduce CHD106: Understanding and Promoting Infant Development to the online child care training course catalog.

Early childhood is the most active stage of human development and more growth occurs in the first year of life than any other period.  Caregivers who understand the progression of development are more prepared to respond to needs and create appropriate learning environments.  In this course, caregivers will discover the characteristics of infant development.  In addition, the course provides strategies caregivers can use to promote growth and learning across all areas of development.

“It is important for child care professionals to have a deeper understanding of the physical, cognitive, social, emotional and educational development that occurs in infants from birth to one year of age,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.  “After taking this course, teachers should be better able to provide quality care for children and implement developmentally appropriate activities in the childcare setting.”

CHD106: Understanding and Promoting Infant Development is a two-hour, beginner-level course and grants 0.2 IACET CEU upon successful completion. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can register for 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.
