Child Care

Required Trainings

Child care providers who are exempt from licensing with the Office of Child Care who want to be listed and approved to receive child care payment through the Employment Related Day Care Program need to take pre-service trainings. Once a provider is approved, an orientation and ongoing trainings are needed to continue to receive child care payments.

Pre-Service Trainings

Pre-service training means the training will need to be completed before new child care providers can be approved and listed with DHS.

Training #1

This on-line training is required for all license-exempt providers and takes approximately two hours. This training covers:

  • Prevention and control of infectious diseases
  • Prevention of sudden infant death syndrome and use of safe sleep practices
  • Administration of medication
  • Prevention and response to emergencies due to food and allergic reactions
  • Building and physical premises safety
  • Prevention of shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma
  • Emergency preparedness and response planning
  • Handling and storage of hazardous materials and the disposal of bio-contaminants
  • Appropriate precautions in transporting children

Training #2

Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect

This training is required for all license exempt child care providers who are not related to all children in their care. If you are a great-grandparent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or sibling not living in the home of the child, this is not a required class.
The Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect training takes approximately two hours to complete. The training is available online or in a classroom setting. Contact your local Child Care Resource & Referral to take the training in a classroom setting.

Training #3

Pediatric First Aid and CPR

This training is also required for all license exempt child care providers who are not related to all children in their care. If you are a great-grandparent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or sibling not living in the home of the child, this is not a required class.
A current Pediatric First Aid and CPR certificate is required. If you do not have one, contact your local Child Care Resource & Referral Agency for training dates. You may be eligible for a short-term waiver if there is not a training date readily available in your area.

Orientation

Orientation for DHS providers is required for all newly approved license-exempt providers. It is also required if you are reapproved after a break as a DHS provider of one year or more. The orientation needs to be completed within 90 days of approval to remain eligible for payment. This orientation covers:

  • DHS child care programs
  • The payment and billing process
  • What to do if you have problems or questions
  • Child care provider rights and responsibilities
  • Enhanced rate training options
  • Service Employees International Union representation for licensed-exempt home and relative child care providers
