Training & Workshops for Care Providers

We provide training & workshops at Childhood Connections Child Care Resource & Referral Program to support our community care providers. As well as to foster quality and inclusive child care in our Central Okanagan community. Our training follows the implementation of the BC Early Learning Framework, Schedule G of the BC Child Care Licensing Regulation and the Early Childhood Educators of BC Code of Ethics.

We also provide links to affiliate trainings and workshops available within our community and applicable online trainings from around the province and beyond.
