Online Child Care Training Approved in Kansas
Anyone, anywhere is welcome to enroll in one of our online child care classes. If your state does have a training approval process, that information is detailed below. Your state may not specifically approve trainings toward the required hours of professional development that you need each year. If so, you may use these classes! Please note that you may also use these class hours towards 120 hours needed for the CDA certificate.
- Per Deborah Kern from the Early Care and Youth Program, "Kansas can only accept online courses that are in a webinar type format. The 'face to face' interaction with other participants is what is necessary for the trainings." We will check back annually to see if this policy has changed.
As of July 2013, the policy has not changed. The only online courses that Kansas continues to approve at this time are courses that have been approved for college credit or for courses that have been approved for early childhood CEU's.
- If you are a provider interested in starting an in-home child care program or looking to get started working in the child care field, please contact your state licensing agency for the specific requirements, rules and regulations of your state. Kansas' licensing website can be found here.
