CCEI March 2021 Newsletter
Universal Design for Learning
Isn’t it amazing to see all of the different ways that children show us what they know? Some children tell us what they know, some children draw what they know. At the same time, other children will construct, reenact, write, sing, dance, and sculpt their knowledge for us to see.

This past year I’ve successfully completed my Florida Child Care Professional Credential (FCCPC) courses with ChildCare Education Institute. I plan to continue my education by obtaining my Director’s Certification with CCEI as well. I would absolutely recommend ChildCare Education Institute to anyone looking to start their career in early childhood education.
