Common Core State Standards in ECE
ChildCare Education Institute is pleased to offer a new two-hour online child care training course to explain Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and how they affect Early Childhood Education (ECE). This intermediate level course addresses the controversy surrounding CCSS and provides a basic examination at an early childhood level. The goals and content parameters, purpose of developmental "guiding principles", and recommended teaching practices and assessment tools are all covered within this online course. The CCSS are more than an educational trend, and are important to study in order to understand the shift and reasoning behind evolving public education in the U.S.
