The Iowa Early Learning Standards (2012) define what young children should know and be able to do during the first five years of life. Getting to Know the Iowa Early Learning Standards (IELS) is a professional development opportunity for any practitioner who touches the lives of children and families. The course includes training modules that include a variety of activities to assist practitioners in building their understanding of the IELS and how to use them in their work with children and families. Module topics include: Introduction to the IELS, Principles of Child Development, Understanding Early Learning Theory, Approaching Learning through Play; The Role of Relationships and Routines in Children´s Development, and A Seamless Continuum of Learning from Birth - 12th Grade.
Target Audience: Practioners in roles within early care and education, family support, health mental health, and special needs settings who serve children and families.
This course is being done in collaboration with Clinton/Jackson Early Childhood Iowa and Scott County Kids. Participants will receive resources and materials to support this implementation. You must attend all sessions to receive those materials.
The series was developed and written by Tammy Bormann, an ECE Consultant and Instructor in Central Iowa, through funds from Early Childhood Iowa and the Iowa Department of Management as part of their efforts to ensure that “Every child, beginning at birth, will be healthy and successful.”
