Child Care Provider Training is Being Offered Via Online
Nashville, Ark. –
How do I get childcare training?
Once again Best Care will be offered by the University of Arkansas, Division of Agriculture, in partnership with the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Association for early childhood professionals. As in the past, Best Care offers up to 50 hours of early childhood professional development.
We usually offer 10 hours of Best Care training in a face to face atmosphere. This year, due to Covid-19, and with your safety in mind, the face to face Best Care 2021 will be offered online. You can get your 10 hours of training at home. It’s simple to enroll, go to https://courses.uada.edu/ and follow the instructions. The Best Care course will be open from January 4 to June 30, 2021. That means you have 6 months to get your 10 hours of verified training. You can do the units one at a time and come back later to finish them. Once completed, you will print off your certificate for your files.
The 2021 course topics are Be Wise About Portion Size, Farm to Classroom, Owning Your Own Feelings, Helping Children Deal with Strong Feelings, Importance of Physical Activity, Mindfulness, Professionalism, Time Management, Circle Time Strategies, and Block Play.
We also continue to offer Best Care Connected which is five hours of online training; and Guiding Children Successfully is 30 hours of self-guided study and available online. If you prefer to use the self-guided hard copy of the Guiding Children Successfully, it is available at your local Extension office.
All training opportunities are offered free of charge and are verified training through the Professional Development Registry (PDR), formerly known as the Traveling Arkansas’ Professional Pathways (TAPP) and support the Better Beginnings quality rating system.
