This program impressed me ... I felt like it gave me more of a focus on something teachers can actually do. It gives teachers a toolkit of what to do in certain situations ... real-world ways to respond to what they're seeing.”
Begin to ECSEL online training courses are designed for teachers and caregivers of children from birth to eight years of age. The courses focus on strengthening knowledge of begin to ECSEL and its implementation, and increasing understanding of the underlying constructs that support the growth of children’s emotional, cognitive, and social early learning and development.
Emotional competence, empathy, self-regulation, and other critical emotional, cognitive, and social early learning skills and competencies are addressed in this year-long, eight-course program. Current literature on the growth and development of children is reviewed and analyzed in congruence with both verbal and video presentations of children’s behavior and functioning as observed in the classroom. Teachers’ and caregivers’ own emotional competence is simultaneously supported and fostered through online coursework.
Each begin to ECSEL course includes three 30-minute self-paced modules, and a 45-minute webinar. The best arrangement would be to complete one course each six weeks, and eight courses over the span of a school year.
At the end of this training, learners will have the skills to successfully promote the building blocks of emotional intelligence and other critical emotional, cognitive, and social early learning skills in the children they work with and within themselves.
