MountainHeart Child Care Resource and Referral Services, a program of MountainHeart Community Services, Inc., will conduct professional development sessions on Friday, March 8, at the First Brethren Church Fellowship Hall, Oak Hill, for all family day care providers, facility providers and day care center staff. Other participants from the child care community and potential child care providers may also register to attend as long as seating is available.
“Expressive Art” will be the topic for the professional development session being held from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
The professional development sessions meet the West Virginia core competencies and state regulations for family day care providers, family day care facilities and day care centers. The professional development sessions are registered with the State Training and Registry System (STARS), provided by certified STARS instructors and child care providers registered on the Career Pathway will receive credit for attending.
To receive a certificate of completion all participants must attend the full professional development sessions. There is no charge for the sessions. Pre-registration for the professional development sessions is required.
You may register by calling Reba or Missy at 866-872-9204 or 304-872-9200. If a session is canceled, registered participants will be notified. Child care providers are encouraged to attend MountainHeart professional development sessions in surrounding counties if professional development hours are needed.
