DC Early Learning Standards (DC ELS) 101

The training will use group discussions, hands-on-activities and video clips to allow participants to explore the components and structure of the DC ELS and develop an understanding of developmentally appropriate programming for infants, toddlers and preschool age children in the beginning stages of effective implementation.
