Professional Development Opportunities

At Child Care Resource we believe that professional development is key to your experience as an early educator and to the quality of the child care you offer. Our trainings cover a wide variety of topics including observing children’s behavior, parents as customers, new activity ideas, and “hot topics” in the field of child care. The State of Vermont requires a minimum of 15 hours a year of training for all registered child care providers and a minimum of 15 hours for child care providers working in licensed programs. As your training sponsor, we will submit all of the necessary paperwork to Northern Lights for entry into BFIS so that you will get the training credit you earn with no additional work on your part.
