Health and Safety For School-Age and Centers Now Available

Health and safety is an important aspect to creating an environment to enhance children’s development.

Health and Safety Competencies for School-age Child Care providers and for Child Care Centers is a competency-based training that is divided into modules that correspond with a segment of a video designed to illustrate and support each training topic. The video demonstrates what safe and healthy child care looks like within each competency area.

To provide consistent and accurate information about each topic, activities are structured and participant materials are included to supplement each learning segment. A copy of the NYSOCFS regulations will be provided as part of the curriculum. Topics covered include: supervision, indoor and outdoor safety, health practices, child abuse and mandated reporting, and fire safety.

Upon completion of the series, you will have a deeper understanding of the foundations of health and safety practices required by the NYSOCFS. This information is relevant to maintaining your license or registration and vital to the health and safety of children.
