Nevada's Core Knowledge Areas and Core Competencies for Early Childhood Professionals:


Nevada's Core Knowledge Areas and Core Competencies for Early Childhood Professionals:

Nevada's ECE Core Knowledge Areas (CKA) are a set of content areas that define what care givers should know and understand in order to provide quality experiences for children. In July 2006, the CKAs were revised to be more closely aligned with national standards and are reflected in this document, which includes the newly developed Core Competencies. Core Competencies are a set of observable skills that reflect a care giver's knowledge and understanding of the Core Knowledge Areas. Core Competencies help to standardize the expectations for ECE professionals and are based on nationally accepted standards and best practice in the field of ECE. Nevada's competencies were developed by a statewide team of ECE professionals and are part of the larger Nevada ECE Professional Development System.
