|The youngest children under your care are infants and toddlers, whose cognitive development is like a learning sponge from ages zero to three. It is during this time that the positive influence and teachings of early childhood educators like you that can have a long-lasting impact in a child’s life.
The knowledge you acquire through the Infant/Toddler CDA prepares you to apply scientific findings and expert theories with the young children you serve daily.
Engage and apply cognitive practices in your early childhood setting today with this article which include helpful tips and advice from experts:
The infant/toddler credential allows opportunity for advancing your professional development opportunities, learning about the latest scientific findings in cognitive/brain development, and working with developmentally appropriate practices with infants, toddlers, and their families through training, learning materials (e.g. Essentials and the CDA Competency Standards), and experience.

Two teacher trainings, for the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource, are being held on October 23 and December 6, in Tacoma.
OSPI has identified the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource for use in high schools. These teacher trainings will prepare classroom teachers, in the use of the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource in their classroom, providing a basic overview of mental health, and illness, and orientation, to the teaching materials. The resource improves mental health literacy, and it is widely taught in schools across Canada, and internationally. The material is medically accurate, designed for classroom settings, and all teaching materials can be downloaded at no cost.
OSPI has mapped the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource to the Health Education K-12 Learning Standards (revised 2016), and it aligns with all eight learning standards (H1-8) when the full curriculum resource is implemented with fidelity.

Bringing the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource to Washington students is a partnership between the WA Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Project AWARE, the Jordan Binion Project, and CHI Franciscan Health’s Prevent-Avert-Respond (PAR) Initiative. We thank Comprehensive Life Resources for their collaboration in providing these Teacher Trainings.
Nurturing Young Eaters is a new training course for early learning professionals from the University of Washington Center for Public Health Nutrition. The goal of this training is to empower early learning professionals to provide engaging and healthy mealtime environments and take advantage of mealtime opportunities to promote learning and child development. This training also highlights how providing engaging mealtime environments can help earn points for Early Achievers, Washington’s quality rating and improvement system. Participants who complete the training will earn 1 STARS continuing education credit in Health, Safety & Nutrition. This online training is made freely available to early learning professionals thanks to support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Washington State Department of Health.
