ATLANTA, GA, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online childcare training provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is pleased to introduce HLTH112: Identifying and Reporting Child Abuse to the online training catalog for childcare.
Childcare professionals often find themselves on the front lines in the fight against child abuse and neglect. That’s because childcare professionals, other than family members, probably spend more time with children than anyone else. This often enables them to spot potential signs of abuse and neglect. Aside from moral obligations, childcare workers also have a legal obligation to report suspected signs of abuse to the appropriate authorities.
It is also important that childcare professionals know what child abuse is and preventative strategies, as unfortunately sometimes they are reported as the perpetrators. For this reason, continuous education on this subject is essential for child safety. A caregiver might be the one who helps a child out of an abusive situation. Your actions serve the well-being of the child and can save lives. ECE professionals have the power to transform the lives of any child, especially a neglected child who has experienced abuse.
