How to Pre-Register for Professional Development Sessions
All providers wishing to attend any Professional Development session held or sponsored by MountainHeart Child Care Resource & Referral will be required to pre-register for each session. All sessions have a limited number of seats available.
All you need to do to pre-register is call the Elkins office at 304-637-2840 or Toll Free at 1-877-862-3103. You can also find out additional information, such as times, about each training session by calling this number.
If a session is canceled, registered participants will be notified.
Which Professional Development Session Is Right For Me?
Now it’s easier to choose a professional development session that meets your needs!
The description of each class will contain some additional information. Common identifiers will be classes focusing on different ages levels and managerial leadership classes.
Remember: The new regulations now say, if you work in a child care center, you must have 6 hours of training in the age level of the children that you work with, and directors need 6 hours of management classes every year.
MountainHeart Professional Development Sessions are provided for the professional development of all child care providers. To allow All Participants the opportunity to focus fully on the subject matter, we ask that you do not bring infants or children to the sessions.
We regret we are unable to provide child care during training. Thank you for honoring our policy in this matter.
