Connecticut Office of Early Childhood Introduces New Video on Early Learning and Development Standards

The Connecticut Office of Early Childhood released a new video that supports the implementation of the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards.

The CT ELDS: A Valuable Tool for Supporting Young Children illustrates how early childhood providers can meaningfully incorporate the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards in their planning and teaching in order to provide developmentally appropriate experiences for young children. Teachers, administrators, and family child care providers across Connecticut discuss how the CT ELDS is a useful tool for intentional teaching, and share how they use the tool in practice. The video describes the different features of the CT ELDS, how the tool can be used to meet the diverse needs of the children in their care, and how it can support working with families.

This video was developed by the Center for Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State University with funding from the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood.
