Teacher Training

Early Childhood Partners provides multiple community wide trainings each year for early childhood professionals, and also trainings for specific child care programs upon request.

Incredible Years Teacher Classroom Management (5 days) and Incredible Years Dinosaur School (3 days) trainings occur annually with follow-up coaching to support implementation.

The Expanding Quality in Infant and Toddler Care Training is offered annually for anyone who lives or works with babies and is interested in learning about infant and toddler development. Topics include: responsive caregiving, language development, safe and healthy environments, positive guidance, temperaments, curriculum planning, understanding and respecting the benefits of culture, and inclusion. Successful completion of this 14 week training meets licensing training requirements for infant/toddler teachers who work with children birth to three years, and follow-up coaching is available to participants.

Additional trainings include Lena Grow and Flip It®, also accompanied by follow-up coaching to support fidelity implementation. Lena Grow is proven to increase language usage and interactions between children and teachers, resulting in increased language development and attachment. FLIP IT® is a strategy that offers a simple, kind, strengths-based, common sense, and effective four step process to addressing children’s day to day challenging behavior.

ECP’s training opportunities focus on early childhood mental health, social and emotional skill building, self-care, quality improvement strategies, and family support and engagement. All of ECP’s trainers are certified by the Colorado Department of Education, and endorsed Train the Trainers in each tool we teach and coach to.
