One College Credit Class Begins Virtually or Face-to-Face in Fall
Northwest Regional CCR&R and Clatsop Community College’s Continuing Education/Workforce Development are collaborating on a one-college-credit professional development opportunity for early childhood educators and care providers in Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook Counties for the Fall term which begins in September of 2018. The course “Early Childhood Development and Learning” is to be held on four consecutive Thursday nights beginning October 11th and continuing through November 1.
The class, a tri-sectioned course, explores the first three of the NAEYC’s 10 standards for early childhood programs: Relationships; Curriculum; and Teaching. Students will spend ten clock hours in human growth and development and learning environments and curriculum examining how positive and responsive relationships, developmentally appropriate plans and effective instructional approaches are part of the foundations of a quality early learning program. The class will be held from 6 pm—8:30 pm at Clatsop Community College’s Jerome Campus. Exact classroom is still to be determined.
This Continuing Education course is $35 and scholarship funds are available through both the NW Early Learning Hub and the Oregon Center for Career Development. Successful completion includes attendance October 11, October 18, October 25 and November 1. A virtual attendance option will be available as well. Course, scholarship and registration details will be available in the Fall college catalog or by contacting your CCR&R specialist.
