For people who work with young children, the Early Childhood Institute will provide a lot of answers.
The one-day event will be in three Georgia cities during September. It's sponsored by the University of Georgia Extension Service and many state child care groups and agencies.
The program offers a range of timely topics for child care center employees, preschool and kindergarten teachers and aides, parents of young children and others. It will provide five hours of child care training credit with the Child Care Licensing Section of the Georgia Department of Human Resources.
The ECI will be Sept. 11 in Tifton (Rural Development Center), Sept. 18 in Atlanta (Georgia State University) and Sept. 25 in Macon (Macon College).
The $45 registration fee includes refreshments and lunch. You must preregister to attend. To learn more about the program, or to sign up, call (912) 386-3416.
