Online Training Course from CCEI Offers Key Mentoring Practices for Child Care Providers

ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), a distance learning professional development and certificate provider, offers ADM108: The Mentoring Process: Developing Professionalism from Within as an online no-cost trial child care training course to new CCEI users during the month of November.

Mentoring helps strengthen teaching skills and shape professional attitudes. These skills and attitudes are the foundation of a program that provides high quality learning experiences for children and youth. This course examines the many benefits of professional mentoring, which improve teacher effectiveness and overall program quality. The course is intended primarily for directors and administrators but it addresses an important issue for all early childhood professionals. Course participants will learn to recognize important qualities and characteristics of mentors and mentees, define elements of both formal and informal mentoring programs, and identify the benefits of professional mentoring in the childcare environment.

“Mentoring plays a key role in the development and improvement of a highly trained staff within an early childhood setting” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “This course provides important information to assist directors and administrators to properly train and develop qualified staff members and ensure the best possible setting for young children.”

This beginner-level training course is available as a trial course to new users with CCEI account creation in November. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can enroll in professional development courses at no additional cost when logged in to their CCEI account. Users without subscriptions can purchase child care training courses with block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
