In November of 2014, the United States Congress reauthorized the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014. The new law ensures that children are being cared for in healthy and safe environments. States now must require early childhood and afterschool professional child care providers to complete training in 11 specific Health & Safety topics. All new employees hired after September 30, 2017, must complete the trainings within 90 days of hire. For programs operating for 4 months or less, new employees must complete the training within 2 weeks of hire. The Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration is pleased to offer a web based Health & Safety program that will help you meet these requirements at no cost.
