Preschoolers Need Critical Thinking Skills
Children need to build a strong foundation with critical thinking and knowledge beginning in early childhood in order to build high-level skills involving analysis, evaluation, and creation. CCEI offers an online one-hour training course -- Critical Thinking Skills in the Preschool Environment -- available for online enrollment at anytime. New users who create a CCEI account during September can complete the Critical Thinking course at no cost all month. Understanding the role of open-ended questions, developmentally appropriate practices, and strategies for incorporating critical thinking into the classroom are also covered within the online child care training course.
