2017 Health, Safety and Child Development Trainings for All CCAP Providers
To help ensure the health and safety of children, IDHS is now requiring that providers complete specific health, safety and child development training, have current CPR/First Aid certification, and complete annual training hours.
Who is required to complete training?
In Illinois, all center and home-based early childhood care and education providers participating in CCAP will have minimum training requirements. In order for a current provider to continue receiving CCAP payments, some trainings must be completed by September 30, 2017, and additional trainings must be completed by September 30, 2018. After this, annual training requirements will go into effect.
