Planting the SEED of Success: Maintaining a Commitment to Professionalism

Like any profession, early childhood is a field which is founded upon specialized educational training to ensure educators have the required knowledge and skills to work successfully with children and their families. This training will define what a professional is, introduce professional organizations in early education, review the Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and discuss the early educator’s role in advocacy.

  • Session meets 10:00 am to 4:30 pm with a half hour break
  • The 10 hours of training includes 6 contact hours and 4 from homework
  • Lunch is provided.  If you have special dietary needs, please plan on providing your own lunch. 

Completion of all four sessions for Entry level 1 is equivalent to completing Level 3 on the SEED Career Ladder. Early educators who have additional education not related to the early childhood field may elect to complete these four entry level sessions to be recognized at a higher level on the SEED Career Ladder.
