Child Care

Required Training

The following training is required for providers that want to be listed with the Department of Human Services (DHS) to receive payment through the Employment Related Day Care Program.

Health and Safety Training Requirement

A pre-service Introduction to Child Care Heath and Safety training is required effective September 30, 2016 for all license-exempt providers. Pre-service training means the training will need to be completed before new child care providers can be approved and listed with DHS. If you are currently listed with DHS you will be required to take the trainings by July 31, 2017.

The training covers these areas:

  • 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

The Introduction to Child Care Health and Safety​ training takes approximately two hours. You must register to receive a login and password.

Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect (RRCAN)

The Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect online training will take about two hours to complete. The training is also available in a classroom style training through your local Child Care Resource and Referral. This training is required for all license exempt child provider who will be listed with DHS and are not related to a child 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.

Mandatory Orientations for License-Exempt Child Care Providers

Orientation for DHS providers became mandatory July 1, 2010. All newly listed or relisted license-exempt providers need to complete the training within 90 days of listing with DHS to remain eligible for payment. This orientation gives you information on the DHS Child Care Programs and helps you to understand:

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

Additional training

Oregon Center for Career Development in Childhood Care and Education (OCCD) runs programs for child care providers, including the Enhanced Rate Program training, and the Oregon Registry. The Oregon Registry is a voluntary, statewide program to document and recognize the achievements of child care and education professionals. Family providers and centers exempt from Child Care Division licensing, who serve DHS clients, are eligible to earn an enhanced rate if they meet specified training standards. 

OCCD maintains a calendar of training opportunities available to child care providers across the state. The calendar includes the orientation for DHS providers that will become mandatory effective July 1, 2010.
