Inclusion I Foundations: Child Care plus+ Course on Inclusion in Early Childhood

Stay at home and learn! This course is designed using a proven self-study format—an excellent way to juggle work, family, AND school. This self-study course highlights inclusion as a core component of excellence in early childhood. Through materials to read, assignments to complete, activities to try, and personal consultation, you will explore ways to individualize and successfully support children in your program. The course is a total of 15 weeks and can be taken to satisfy 15 hours of state approved training hours or for one college credit. The best part is you can complete the entire course from your own home or program!

This course is for you if...

...you want new ideas and solutions for meeting the needs of the children in your program.
...you have a child in your program who has developmental delays.
...you don't have the time to attend evening or weekend workshops.
...you are anxious to try out new ideas.
...you feel like your skills in individualizing need to be updated.
...you are ready to commit to ten weeks of training.
