  • I have 10 staff members registered. They can just be put into any classes available. Do I have to re-register them again?
    Thanks, Lynda Leopard

  • No need to re-register. We’ll try to honor everyone’s first choice for both sessions as space allows. We just wanted to make everyone aware of the change in the subject area classification for some of the sessions in case anyone had some specific subject area certification needs. If you do have anyone that needs to change their session, please get in touch with Crystal Rice at the contact info above. Thanks for checking – others may have had the same question.

  • This training is especially for providers in our Excellence in Care and Early Learning child care quality program, but many local First Steps partnerships offer training for child care providers. Please check with your local partnership to see what training opportunities they offer.
