April 2020 Newsletter - Special Edition
Coronavirus Resources
We are in uncertain times right now. The Coronavirus has caused leaders to make difficult decisions that impact each of us in some way. Schools and business are closed in many parts of the country and there are daily reports of growing numbers of people diagnosed with COVID-19. You probably have many questions weighing on your mind. When will this end? Will I have the resources I need to take care of my family? When will I be able to return to work? What happens if I get sick? What if I run out of things to watch on Netflix?

Not having the answers to questions can cause some people to feel more anxious than normal. In addition to feeling apprehension, symptoms of anxiety also include restlessness, frustration, inability to concentrate, body aches, and trouble sleeping. Sometimes, gaining more information can help ease these feelings and promote a sense of peace. As they say, knowledge is power!

Unfortunately, we are also in an era of misinformation and it can be difficult to know where to turn to receive trustworthy information. We have compiled a list of resources that you may find helpful in your search for information about this pandemic. Click the Learn More button below.

I have been taking courses through CCEI for ten years now and I really like all of the information I obtain. As a CCEI course reviewer for the past four years, I enjoy seeing and reviewing the new information being presented. My three top recommendations are SOC106: The Value of Mindfulness in Early Childhood Settings, CHD109: Supporting Spiritual Development in Early Learning Environments, and the most recent one I reviewed is CUR125: Loose Parts: Incorporating Found Objects and Open-Ended Materials into the Classroom.
