Take Top Courses From the Top Early Childhood Training Provider this Thanksgiving Break

Are professional development or child development courses on your "to-do list?" If so, this Thanksgiving break is a great time to take incredible courses that fit YOUR schedule from the leader in early childhood training!

The Best Early Childhood Training Provider:

If you've been here for a while, you know that I've taken several courses from ChildCare Education Institute, including Sensational ScienceActive Learning in Early ChildhoodBuilding Literacy Through Nursery Rhymes and Children's Poetry, and Bright Beginnings: Age Appropriate Activities for Infants and Toddlers.  Every single course was well organized and contained useful information that was easy to apply immediately! I am happy to recommend them completely!

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) makes getting professional development super easy because their web-based programs are available 24-7--all the time--even over Thanksgiving break! I've noticed that the hours for each course are very close to the actual time the course takes, so if you want to take two hours the day before Thanksgiving and schedule a 2-hour course for yourself, you can!

And (unlike most of their competitors) CCEI provides student support and online communities for their learners! You can connect with other teachers working on the same courses as you! In fact, CCEI has graduated more than 15,000 early childhood professionals from their CDA and other certificate programs! And more than 99% of those graduates also recommend CCEI!  

ChildCare Education Institute also stands out among training providers because they are a CDA Gold Standard training provider AND are nationally accredited by both the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) and the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

Here's a visual chart that highlights some of the unique characteristics of ChildCare Education Institute and shows how other early childhood trainers compare:

My top favorite features of courses from ChildCare Education Institute are the following:

* Awesome research-based course materials!

* CONVENIENT web-based courses!

* Over 150 courses in English & Spanish--there is always something that is interesting to study or needed for my own professional development!

* IACET CEU's available at no extra cost! (CCEI will even electronically transmit your completions to state registries where available!)

* You can try it all out for free! There is always a free trial course available for new CCEI users!

* Thousands of people recommend CCEI! (Yes, I am one of those people who like to read other reviews before buying something...and over 99% of CCEI's students love them!)

If you check out the chart above, you'll notice that there is no other early childhood training provider who offers all of those features.  CCEI is definitely the industry leader!

And just in case you're wondering what you should take this week, I have the top five courses for you to check out! Any of these would be perfect to fit in around your Thanksgiving plans...or if you need PD hours, take all five!

Top ECE Courses:

CCEI112A: Child Abuse: Signs of Abuse and Reporting Requirements for Early Childhood Professionals: Learn how to recognize, identify, and categorize child abuse, who mandated reporters are, and how you can report child abuse.

CHD106: Understanding and Promoting Infant Development: Learn the stages of infant development and strategies to encourage development and learning in each stage.

CUR120: Trouble-Free Transitions that Teach: Learn practical and fun ways to implement smooth transitions throughout your day.

CHD103: The Child's Digital Universe: Technology and Digital Media in Early Childhood: Learn what research is telling us about technology and how digital media is changing childhood and early education.

SOC106: The Value of Mindfulness in Early Childhood Settings: Learn what mindfulness is and how you can incorporate it into a classroom to encourage a calming and reflective environment.

In addition to these popular courses (actually, in addition to any course you take), professionals taking courses with ChildCare Education Institute under one of their center-based subscription plans have access to their library of over 10,000 activity ideas! Have you ever wanted to find a new activity to go with a theme and not wanted to scour the internet? This is the perfect solution, and CCEI is the ONLY training provider to offer this to their students! It is a brilliant idea, and just by itself is worth the tuition for any course!
