CCEI's new online course, The Toddler Curriculum, is designed specifically for early childhood professionals who work with toddlers, a group that typically includes children between twelve and thirty-six months of age. The course covers basic information about appropriate, effective curriculum; recommended guidance and teaching practices; appropriate materials and design elements in the learning environment; and effective strategies for working and communicating with parents.

Toddler Curriculum is a two-hour, beginner-level course and grants 0.2 IACET CEUs upon successful completion. CCEI professional development courses are available to account holders with an active, annual individual or center-based subscription or can be purchased individually through online enrollment.

"CCEI coursework serves educators in child care centers and schools serving children from birth through age eight," says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. "With the introduction of so many new Infant and Toddler programs, particularly in Head Start, coursework of this kind can provide key information for those working with children during this particularly formative, and sometimes challenging, developmental phase."
