RFHF Overview

Who are ECRR Trainers?

ECRR Trainers (officially called Every Child Ready to Read Standardized Trainers) are early childhood professionals who completed the Oregon Center for Career Development in Childhood Care and Education (OCCD) approved Training of Trainers for the Every Child Ready to Read @ your library® early literacy curriculum.  After they complete the Training of Trainers, they are certified to conduct Every Child Ready to Read @ your library® trainings on a contractual basis with other agencies, organizations, libraries, or Commissions at their discretion and offer Set One continuing education credit.

What do ECRR Trainers do?

ECRR Trainers are certified to conduct three different Every Child Ready to Read @ your library®  workshops.  These workshops are not for parents, they are for early childhood professionals who want to learn how to conduct early literacy trainings for parents.  For example, Head Start may contract with an ECRR Trainer to teach their staff how to conduct early literacy training for the parents of the children in their classes.  
The original Association for Library Services to Children and Public Library Association’s Every Child Ready to Read @ your library® curriculum has been adapted so that it can be delivered in a variety of ways which makes it more appropriate for a wide range of settings, not just libraries.  The three workshops available are:
  • Print Motivation, Vocabulary, and Reading Books
  • Print Awareness, Narrative Skills, and Dialogic Reading  
  • Phonological Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Phonological Awareness Games.
Early childhood professionals who complete an Every Child Ready to Read @ your library® training conducted by one of the Standardized Every Child Ready Trainers will receive Oregon Registry Set One training hours. 
For more information about the three workshops please contact one of the ECRR Trainers or Katie.Anderson@state.or.us.
