Interested in learning more about guiding children's growth and development? Want to learn some new circle time ideas? Our Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) program offers a wide variety of training and networking opportunities all designed to inspire, motivate, educate and keep you up to date on the latest research in the child care field.
Taking time to invest in yourself is something all parents would support! Attending regular workshops ultimately helps improve the quality care offered, signals to families that you really care about enhancing your program and helps you better respond to the needs of children in your care.
Select from a wide range of training options, with convenient locations, dates, times (including evenings and weekends) all at a reasonable cost. Topics vary and are of interest to child care providers and parents alike. Professional development certificates are provided.
We are also pleased to also offer networking opportunities designed especially for child care providers. Networking offers the chance to both meet other professionals in your field, but also to create a network of support, build connections with like-minded individuals and share challenges and best practices.
View the latest workshops and networking opportunities in the schedule below. Register today as space is limited!
