We also discussed training and the amount of training required for this field. Before I went to school for my ECE, I worked in an after-school program with my responsible adult certificate. Now that I have completed my ECE training I realize that I wasn’t fully equipped to deal with some of the children’s developmental needs. There were a lot of challenges that I wasn’t fully trained to handle at that time. I find it puzzling that in order to become an ECEA all that is required is Health, Safety, and Nutrition. Why not require ECEAs to complete Child Growth and Development or Guiding and Caring before Health, Safety and Nutrition?
