Early Childhood Educator Training/Center Certification Program
This professional training is designed to give early childhood educators everything needed to teach the Baby Signs® Program to infants and toddlers in their centers. This 3-hour staff training program can be used to certify a center or organization to become a Baby Signs® Certified Center. With games, songs, and activities liberally sprinkled throughout the training, teachers stay engaged and excited as they learn.
One goal of this program is to help child care programs of any size—big or small—begin enjoying the benefits that come from incorporating signing into daily interactions between children and teachers. The other equally important goal is to help family service agencies (such as nonprofit organizations, hospitals, nanny agencies, child care resource and referral services, etc.) learn how to easily incorporate the Baby Signs® Program into their existing early childhood and parenting programs and their community outreach efforts.
