Free Online Training Opportunity from CCEI - Addressing Homelessness
Posted Tuesday, November 13, 2018 by Shelly Nye
ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) is proud to offer SOC105: Addressing Homelessness: The Role of the Early Childhood Educator as an online no-cost trial child care training course to new CCEI users November 1-30, 2018. This course is approved by The Nevada Registry for two child care training hours.
According to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) 2016 report entitled Early Childhood Homelessness in the United States: 50 State Profile, the ACF summarized the total population of children under the age of 6 is over 24 million and of those children, over 1.2 million were homeless. Furthermore, 1 child in 20 under the age of 6 experiences homelessness. The summary found that only 8% of homeless children were served in federal programs. A review of the individual state data shows that some states are doing a better job than others at meeting the needs of homeless children. Percentages at the state level range from 4% to 35% of homeless children under the age of 6 receiving educational services through Head Start or Early Head Start.
This course provides participants with an understanding of their role in supporting children and families who experience homelessness. The course explores the prevalence of homelessness as well as its causes and impacts on the developing child. Participants will discover ways they can promote positive outcomes for those who are affected by homelessness through a variety of policies and classroom practices.
This beginner-level, two-hour training course with a 0.2 IACET CEU value is available as a trial course to new users with CCEI account creation. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can enroll in professional development courses at no additional cost when logged in to their CCEI account. Users without subscriptions can purchase child care training courses as block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
