Please see the links below to each video. 1 video is 1 session of the class. You should watch each session (in order) and complete any assignments.
For each session:
Session 2 (You will need either an RF or CF rulebook for this session and you will need to answer the questions for whichever you are (CF or RF) but not both).
Session 6 (I will be looking for a Poster, Flyer, something you developed for parents/staff -- worth 1 hour on certificate)
Session 8 (Assignment directions below -- worth 1 hour on certificate
Homework for class -- The goal is to learn a little more about yourself and have you practice the introspection that we discussed in the session. First, you are going to take the Kiersey test online.
In an email, answer the following questions:
1. What was your personality type?
2. What do you think this means in terms of your strengths as a family child care provider working with infants?
3. What do you think this means in terms of your weaknesses as a family child care provider working with infants?
4. What do you think this means in terms of your strengths as a family child care provider interacting with parents and families?
5. What do you think this means in terms of your weaknesses as a family child care provider interacting with parents and families?
6. Do you have any infants in your child care program where you believe "Goodness of Fit" might be something you would want to explore further based upon your results on the Kiersey test? Share any insights you wish to share.
Session 9 (I will be looking for a set of "10")
Session 10 (I will be looking for 2 goals -- together with the list of 10, worth 1 hour on your certificate)
Session 11 (Last video session)
(Worth 1 hour on your certificate -- please answer by email and use subject line "Infant Development Final")
Please answer the following 5 questions.
1. What 5 health and safety issues do you feel are the most necessary to address in family child care programs?
2. Do you feel that any of the family child care rules for RF or CF (whichever you are) do not positively correlate or fully support infant health, safety or development? Are there any that don't go far enough? Are there any that need to be put in place in your opinion?
3. When you think about optimal development for infants, what are 5 aspects of your program that you believe best support best practices and best outcomes for infants? Be specific and cite what you have learned/know about infant development.
4. When you think about optimal development for infants, what are (up to) 5 aspects of your program that you believe you could improve best practice or best outcomes? Be specific and cite what you have learned/know about infant development.
5. Think about a child that you have known/cared for (your own or a daycare child) who struggled with at least 1 domain/aspect of development (social-emotional, mental, cognitive, language, physical) and explain how the development he/she struggled with affected the rest of the baby's/toddler's development. (What I am asking you to address is how delay or trouble in 1 aspect of development affects the rest of the child's development).
Once you have submitted the "Final Assignment" I will email you an evaluation (please give me 48 hours to email you back). Please complete this (be honest -- what you say in it has zero bearing on whether or not you get a certificate) and return it to me (a photo is fine by email) and then, once I make sure that all your assignments, questions etc are turned in, I will send you the certificate (please give me 5 business days to return your certificate). It will arrive via email in PDF form and all you need to do is print a copy for your records and then upload the certificate to ORO (usually downloading it to your computer or device first).
