DULUTH, Ga., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an accredited, online training institution, is proud to announce the addition of CUR105: Infant Care to the online child care training course catalog.
It is essential for infant caregivers to understand the specific needs and developmental characteristics of children between birth and 12 months of age. While the course is geared toward practitioners who are either new to the child care industry or inexperienced in working with infants, it can also provide valuable information for experienced providers seeking to improve practices or refresh skills. Participants will learn about infant development and typical developmental milestones; essential practices for maintaining a safe, healthy environment; and strategies for promoting optimal growth across all developmental domains.
CUR105 is available for online enrollment anytime and awards 0.2 IACET CEUs upon successful completion. Users with an active, annual training subscription may register for this course when logged in to their account.
"Often, people don't realize how important the first three years are in the brain development of a child," says Maria C. Taylor, CCEI President and CEO. "Knowing how to positively affect this development, even during tasks like feeding and diapering, can make all the difference in a child's development."
ChildCare Education Institute provides quality online professional development programs and is dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce. Over 100 English and Spanish child care training courses are available to meet licensing, recognition program, and Head Start requirements online.

Additionally, CCEI offers online certificate programs, such as the Child Development Associate (CDA), Early Childhood Credential, Director Credentials, and several others.
