Blackboard CourseSites Announcement

Hellow RCCC Staff!

Rainbow Child Care Center is creating an exciting new resource for teachers and Program Directors. Through Blackboard CourseSites, we will have a virtual learning environment you can access from anywhere at anytime. The Course Site will provide free online professional development courses based on the Creative Curriculum and Rainbow Child Care Center specific criteria that count towards your ongoing professional development requirements. The courses will be Rainbow Child Care Center specific, and created just for you! The Course Site will also include a monthly teacher blog, and a calendar of important events. As soon as the site is up and running, I will send all of you an invitation to join the courses. Feel free to email (anicol@rainbowccc.com) or call me (248-519-1969) with any questions.


Teacher Spotlight
