EARLY EDUCATION CAREER INSTITUTE AT A GLANCE

The Early Education Career Institute is committed to the vocational process of early care and education practitioners. We know that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our international career readiness initiatives. In  2019 our organization, TIPS for Child Care Institute realized that by partnering with practitioners like you, together we could overcome career challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch the Early Education Career Institute, formerly TIPS for Child Care Institute.

CAREER READINESS

At the Early Education Career Institute, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the issues of competence and qualification. Career Readiness is by no means an easy feat, but through access and affordability we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We provide on going credential and career competence courses. You may join in our local courses on our campus or through the use of our remote courses across the globe. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

FITNESS AND NUTRITION EDUCATION

Wage The Difference

In 2016 it was reported "half of America's childcare workers need food stamps, welfare payments or Medicaid", with very little changing today. As an effort to support recruitment and retention in ECE we recognize food insecurity and wellness can be barriers to you maintaining sustainable employment.  With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge.  Contact us to learn more about our Farm to ECE and KeyFit Programs as a commitment to this cause.

PLAYTHINGS

Play To Learn

The PlayThings project provides on-site make and take projects and mailed monthly activity boxes. The goal is to promote great opportunities for you as a practitioner to access quality curriculum materials. You may use these to implement practices with the children and families you serve. The Early Education Career Institute recognizes with access to the right resources, as a community of practitioners can you may become empowered by your abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill your potential.

 
 

"When you begin to do things that raise the achievement of  the poorest and disenfranchised students, you may not always get applause. You need to be ready for that."
