Professional Development

The Child Care Council regularly hosts professional development workshops throughout our tri-county service area to assist early childhood educators in meeting their New York State training requirements.

Please Note: non-credit bearing distance learning courses are reviewed using OCFS criteria to ensure they meet the New York State training requirements. Approved courses may qualify for Educational Incentive Program (EIP) funding. If you are seeking training credit towards OCFS required training hours or EIP funding for a distance learning course, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is an approved course. You may do so, by looking at the list of approved online workshops/training.

Need Help Paying For Training or Workshops? Educational Incentive Program (EIP) is a scholarship program which helps providers pay for high quality training and education they need to provide quality care to children. Apply for EIP funding here.
