Embedded Instruction for Early Learning applies the 3R’s of Early Learning: Relationships, Repetition, Routines ™ to help children learn important skills during everyday activities with familiar people at home, in early learning programs and in the community. It is important for people who interact regularly with young children to learn how to do embedded instruction, because children learn best during everyday routines and activities with people and things that are part of everyday life.

Embedded Instruction for Early Learning is recognized as a recommended practice nationally and internationally. The Center and our collaborators have received continuous support for Embedded Instruction for Early Learning from local, state and national sponsors since 2007. Our research focuses on helping those who interact regularly with young children to learn to do embedded instruction at home, in early learning programs and in the community.

“It’s really been great to watch [this child] grow and learn. Last year he was barely saying one word to us. Now he is talking [in] full sentences, coming to his friends and asking and answering questions, and it’s been great!”
