Summary: The early childhood years are critical for children to gain knowledge and skills that provide the foundation for later learning. Young children learn these skills through the interactions they have with their teachers. These courses are intended to increase teachers’ knowledge about specific types of teacher-child interactions that promote children’s development of social/emotional, self-regulatory, cognitive, and language and early literacy skills.
