The Institute is kicking off a social media series that will encourage our followers to explore the Core Body of Knowledge: New York State’s Core Competencies for Early Childhood Educators. The Core Body of Knowledge (CBK) outlines the knowledge, dispositions, and skills required to work with young children. It is an essential resource for all early childhood educators, offering a road map for building meaningful relationships with children, families and colleagues, for creating nurturing, stimulating environments, and for developing oneself as a professional in this incredibly important field. This document was also written for professionals who work directly with training organizations, teacher education programs, those involved with policy and advocacy initiative, those involved with professional development systems, and any others working to elevate this field and improve the quality of early childhood education.
This Tuesday, 2/7/17, our “Explore the Core Body of Knowledge Series” will kick off and we will be posting snapshots of the CBK twice a week. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook and Twitter to receive these updates!
