Early Childhood Video Clip Library for Faculty and Trainers

The Connecticut Office of Early Childhood is excited to announce a new tool designed to help trainers, faculty, coaches, and others support the professional development of those who work with young children and families. The Early Childhood Video Clip Library for Faculty and Trainers contains a collection of 300 video clips that were selected to provide opportunities for awareness and reflection. In some cases, the clips illustrate examples of child development, in others, exemplary practices. Some clips simply provide glimpses of ordinary happenings that may be used to spark discussion. Clips come from a variety of early childhood settings across Connecticut, including Head Start and Early Head Start programs, public schools, School Readiness programs, and family child care providers. The majority of clips do not include narration, so they can be used in multiple ways depending on the focus of the professional development or course.

The Video Clip Library was developed by the Center for Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State University with support from the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood.
