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.
