Training for Arkansas Childcare Providers

Best Care logo

The Best Care training meets the professional development needs of Arkansas' early childhood professionals by providing 10 hours of verified training annually through the Professional Development Registry (PDR). The areas of emphasis include child development, health, nutrition, and resource management. 

Best Care is typically an in-person training, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have adapted to in-person and online trainings for the 2021 year. If you have any questions on whether your county is holding an in-person training or Zoom meeting, please contact your County Extension Agent ;or for more information about Best Care trainings near you, look on the PDR website.
