Innovative Online Child Care Training Platform

This is a great way to get training for one person or for a group of people. In addition the HandPrint child care online training is offered in a very user-friendly and easy to understand delivery system.

The HandPrint online childcare courses for early childhood are in a video format. Participants will log into the presentation and watch the child care training course. Many participants say that they actually felt like they were in the session or at the conference. HandPrint has done it again to bring you another user-friendly platform to do conference level training from the comfort of your own home or work place and on your schedule.

Students can take classes for professional development clock hours for most US States continuing education in-service requirements or to get training towards earning or renewing a CDA. In addition the information will help further the professionalism and career of those who want to continue to grow in their proficiency and knowledge in this industry.

We have a wide range of topics for both directors and administrators, teaching staff and all staff. We understand that child care providers have one of the most important jobs - the care and education of children during the most crucial early learning years. we provide courses that cover critical early childhood issues and contain relevant information. In addition we are constantly adding new titles so take a look and do a class or two today and then come back periodically to see the new sessions offered.
