Details

The practice of continuity of care involves ensuring that each infant and toddler interacts primarily with one or two adults in an early care and education setting. This creates many benefits for children, teachers, and parents. Continuity enhances communication, family partnerships, and children's feelings of safety and security. Are you aware of the numerous benefits of continuity of care for infants and toddlers? Are there barriers to providing continuity of care? Attend this learning event to be able to define continuity of care, list the benefits, state the relationship between continuity of care and building relationships with families, as well as list strategies to overcome barriers that may exist.

 

Participants are required to read course handouts, engage in online activity slides, engage in online coursework for a required length of time, and pass a post knowledge assessment with a score of 90% or higher in order to earn the course certificate. The post knowledge assessment may be taken multiple times to ensure success.

A bit about Karen Darby

Karen is originally from a small town in northern West Virginia, she has 1 sister who currently lives in Orlando, Florida.  Karen lives in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, which is in Cleveland County.   Karen had a very small, private wedding ceremony on 2-22-2022, it was a Tuesday! She kept the name Karen Darby, for professional purposes. Karen has no children of her own but enjoys spending time with her husband's grown children and grandchildren.

Karen's hobbies include anything outdoors, but at the top of her list are: swimming, walking hiking, biking, flower gardening, painting, and she is willing to try anything outdoors at least once.  She is however, afraid of heights.

In her spare time, Karen teaches an adult swimming class for the City of Shelby, she is a certified Aqua Fitness Instructor and certified Lifeguard and certified as a CPR/First Aid/AED instructor.  Karen finds that she volunteers in the community and senior center on a frequent basis, but she loves to spend time with her dog!

An on-going goal of Karen's is to become published author (of more than just an article or blogpost) and to continue to offer the continuing education courses at SWCDC at the highest level of standard possible.
