Learn to Minimize Safety Hazards in Outdoor Child Care Settings
Outdoor play is essential for good health and should be a major part of any effective, high-quality early childhood program. Children need a chance to run, climb, and explore in the outside every day. CCEI offers new users the trial course CCEI110B: Outdoor Safety in the Early Childhood Setting at no cost in June in recognition of Great Outdoors Month. CCEI110B promotes safe, secure outdoor learning through a comprehensive presentation of potential hazards on playgrounds and in other outdoor settings. Participants will learn basic policies and practices designed to prevent injury and exposure to pollutants or toxins, along with strategies for teaching children about safe conduct in the outdoor environment and on playgrounds. This is a one-hour, beginner level, self-paced online course and certificates with documentation of 0.1 IACET CEU credit are available upon successful completion.
