Training

Training helps you learn the key information and skills needed to support children’s growth and development. As a well-trained provider, you are better prepared to offer quality care and learning opportunities to children and attract parents to your program.

Initial Training
Initial training normally occurs before you provide direct care to children without supervision.  Initial training covers health and safety training, and child development information at a minimum.  In addition to initial training an orientation is also available.  For more information contact Kathy Bogdziewicz, Training Specialist at 518-873-3207 Ext. 236 or kathyb@acapinc.org.

Benefits of Training
Training helps you learn the key information and skills needed to support children’s growth and development. As a well-trained provider, you are better prepared to offer quality care and learning opportunities to children and attract parents to your program. Some communities offer child care programs financial incentives for training.

Health and Safety Training
One of your primary responsibilities is to keep the children in your care healthy and safe from injury and illness. There are health and safety policies and procedures that state licensing regulations require child care centers and most family child care homes to follow. Health and Safety training is part of the Initial Training.
