Description:  (2 hours) Online Self-Paced – Open Enrollment * The most important element of a quality early care and education program is the teacher. Although many early educators have believed this statement for many years, researchers have recently confirmed that the number one indicator of a quality early care and education program is the teacher. Furthermore studies have found that the quality of interactions and communication between the teacher and the children are essential in building relationships to enhance children’s learning and social development. Young children who experience warm and respectful relationships are more likely to develop positive relationships with peers and teachers in elementary school. In this course you will learn methods of communicating and interacting with young children that influence social/emotional development and behavior.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain how your personal beliefs and values affect your interactions with children.
  • Name 3 positive strategies for communicating with young children.
  • Summarize the teacher’s role in creating positive communication and interactions with young children.
