Accreditation: ECETI supports licensing regulations and enthusiastically encourages program accreditation through the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs or the National Association for Family Child Care.
On-site staff-training/in-service workshops are available.
Please Note: ECETI follows the guidelines of the CT Department of Public Health Regulations and Statutes, NAEYC Developmentally Appropriate Practice, and accreditation criteria in all workshop content, presentations, consultations and on-site workshops to the best of our ability. Individual presenters may share information, new techniques or ideas that the Institute will not be responsible for. It is not the intent of ECETI to judge or question policies that are currently in place in licensed establishments, rather to use DAP as a measure of best practice. All activities suggested by ECETI and its presenters should be used under proper supervision, and, ECETI will not be held liable for any incidents relating from their use.
