From Better Kid Care:
Better Kid Care provides evidence-informed professional development to early care and education and youth development professionals to improve the quality of their care and educational practices. Online training is available for child care professionals with more than 300 relevant modules.
The professional development hours awarded by Better Kid Care (one or two hours) include time spent reading content, watching module videos, checking your knowledge, completing reflection and application exercises, and taking the post assessment. Because some of these activities may be completed away from the screen, total hours awarded may not equal dedicated screen time.
Research shows that professionals who continue learning offer higher quality care to children and youth. Our online lessons were created for professionals like you who want to learn to enhance programs for children and youth.
