Early Childhood Fundamentals: Understanding Principles of Child Development

Research on child development has produced information on how children not only typically develop but also what influences that development. Information presented to introduce various learning theories on how children grow and learn will provide early educators a better understanding of how children progress. 

  • 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 in both the Entry Level 1 and Mid-Level 2 is equivalent to completing Level 4 on the SEED Career Ladder. Additionally, completion of the 80 hours associated with the entry and mid-levels of thread training supports Early Educators interested in pursuing a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential administered by the Council for Professional Recognition by completion of at least 10 hours in each of the 8 CDA Content Areas.
