Hi! Below is an announcement from the Oregon Registry about a training of trainers for the Early Words curriculum on February 21st in Tigard. Participating in the training of trainers means you would be able to conduct Early Words training for childcare providers and offer them continuing education credit.

What is Early Words? It is an early literacy curriculum based on the same research as the Every Child Ready to Read early literacy curriculum.

What’s the difference between Every Child Ready to Read and Early Words? The intended audience and depth of information.

·         If you want to provide early literacy training to parents and informal childcare providers who are only responsible for a few children at a time, then the Every Child Ready to Read is more appropriate for your intended audience because it provides the level of information families need to help their children get ready to read.

·         If you want to provide early literacy training to childcare providers who are responsible for large groups of children, then Early Words is more appropriate for your intended audience because it provides a higher level of knowledge early childhood professionals need to plan educational programs.

As I mentioned both curriculums are based on the same research. Therefore if you have a preference for one curriculum over the other, then you may use that curriculum for both audiences. I’ve used Early Words with parents effectively and Every Child Ready to Read with childcare providers effectively. The more tools you have in your early literacy toolbox the better you will be able to meet the needs of each unique audience.

If you are not already in the Oregon Registry Trainer Program, then you will need to apply for the level of trainer you are interested in becoming in addition to the training application. Each level of trainer has a basic application. Click this link to go to the program page http://www.pdx.edu/occd/oregon-registry-trainer-program-6. A link to the applications is located just under the photograph.
