Professional development is an important piece of maintaining your child care business. Registered and Licensed providers must receive 20 hours of training each year in subjects related to business management and child development, including:
- child growth and development;
- guidance and discipline;
- transportation; and
- management techniques and leadership.
If you provide care for children younger than 24 months, you must receive additional training in early childhood brain development, prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and Shaken Baby Syndrome.
