Video Clip Library
for Faculty and Trainers

Welcome to Connecticut's Early Childhood Video Clip Library for Faculty and Trainers! The clip library was developed with support from the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood to provide trainers, faculty, coaches, and others with tools to support the professional development of those who work with young children and families. The library contains a collection of video clips that were selected to provide opportunities for awareness and reflection. In some cases, the clips illustrate examples of child development, in others, exemplary practices. Some clips simply provide glimpses of ordinary happenings that may be used to spark discussion. Users may want to use the search feature to look for something specific. Clips also contain categories and tags that can assist in narrowing down the list based on age, setting type, developmental domain and/or content area. View a tutorial for tips on using the library.

Acknowledgements and Terms of Use

These clips were made possible by the many brave teachers, family child care providers, families, and other adults who agreed to allow videotaping of their work and interactions. We thank all the providers who cooperated in the making of these clips. Please remember that the professionals in the video clips make decisions based on what they know about individual children and families, their goals for a particular day or moment, and what happened earlier in the day. These clips are only snapshots in time and do not show the whole context of the situation. While written descriptions may provide some context, not all details are provided to protect confidentiality.

The clips should not be used to criticize individual providers or draw conclusions about quality of care.
We ask that they be used in a way that will ensure respect of their practice and a recognition of their contribution to the field.

I agree to these terms and wish to enter the library
