Good Beginnings: Training for Family Child Care Providers

BC Family Child Care Association’s original Introduction to Family Day Care Course has long been recognized and recommended as part of the licensing process. As of November 2007, the licensing process requires child care providers to have at least 20 hours of training related to child care. BCFCCA and licensing officers around the province recognize the value of the newly revised and expanded (2017) “GOOD BEGINNINGS: Professional Development for Child Care Providers” training. This curriculum meets the training requirements to qualify individuals to work in child care settings for children from birth to 12 years of age, such as:

· Occasional Licensed Child Care
· School-Age Licensed Group Child Care
· Family Child Care

Cost: $275.00 includes workbooks
