WELCOME TO CHILD CARE SOLUTION’S “THE NAVIGATOR” Welcome to The Navigator; our six (6) month training catalog designed to meet the needs of today’s busy child care professionals. We very deliberately chose the name “The Navigator” because caring for children is a journey. Some days the journey is smooth and on other days you may encounter bumps in the road. The journey, however, is critical to the lives of Central NY’s children and our community at large. When you embark on any journey you have several decisions to make. What is your destination? Should you travel by car, train, bus, or plane? Should you travel the fastest route or take the scenic country road? You have to make similar decisions on your professional development journey. What are your goals? Do you want to earn your Child Development Associate credential (CDA)? Are you fulfilling licensing requirements for New York State? Or maybe you just need some new ideas for your program or have a very specific issue you need help with. What about your learning style? Do you like traditional classroom environments? Does on-line learning fit into your schedule better? Maybe you prefer individualized one on one assistance. Wherever and however you are going in your child care career, Child Care Solutions is here to help you navigate the way. We do this work because we understand and appreciate the important role you play in the lives of children. We have developed this training catalog with that in mind. You will find a variety of course offerings to meet your needs. We have expanded our online classes with new E-Trainings and are bringing you some brand new workshops. We hope you like what you see. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us at 315-446-1220. And as always, thank you for choosing Child Care Solutios for your professional development needs! Pat Beck

JUST FOR DIRECTORS LEADING WHEN YOU ARE USED TO FOLLOWING Having a succession plan is vital to running a strong business. Do you have someone in place right now that can keep things running smoothly? If not, think about who that might be. Often the most likely candidate is someone who will come from the ranks. This person will have some unique challenges as they move from follower to leader. Pat Beck will shed some light on what these challenges are and how they can avoid some common pitfalls. This session is designed for the recent or soon to be leader.

TOP TEN TIPS FOR GUIDING TODDLER BEHAVIOR

Long before David Letterman started his Top Ten lists, we created this list based on a solid understanding of toddler development and behavior. Gretchen Kinnell will lead you in a humorous, but oh-so-true picture of toddler development and related behaviors. You’ll see why some of the behaviors that may seem so baffling to adults are the very behaviors that Mother Nature has put in place to help them make sense of their world. You’ll increase your understanding of toddlers, and learn to guide their behavior in ways that are fair to them and that save your sanity.

Human beings are born with a set of signals. Current research suggests there are nine inborn signals.

Dr. T. Berry Brazelton has said that the two things every child needs are love and limits. We are very comfortable with the “love” part of this statement, but we often struggle with providing effective limits. In this session Gretchen Kinnell will help you understand why limits are so important for young children, how to create effective limits and how to respond when children test those limits. You’ll learn to create limits that are good and strong – exactly what every child needs. Fee: Presenter: Location: Date: Time: OCFS Area: CBK Area: CDA Goal:

WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE ON THE PHONE?

There are special behavior guidance challenges when you care for children in a wide age range. Family child care providers need well-thought-out approaches to effectively guide the behavior of children in ways that match the developmental level of each age group, that meet the needs of individual children and that are “do-able.” This session features user-friendly standards that can be customized for children of different ages within the same group.

What do you LOOK like on the phone? First impressions are essential when building relationships, but how do we make powerful connections when the first interaction is over the phone? Join Tonia Thornton as she takes a look at making a strong impression with a potential parent and how to help them navigate their way to YOUR childcare.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

NURTURING CREATIVITY DURING THE SCHOOL-AGE YEARS

Safety is not an option. It is essential in any good program for young children. That’s why you check your indoor and outdoor environments for hazards on a daily basis. In addition to these daily safety checks, you need to be prepared for the unexpected medical emergencies or disasters that might occur while the children are in your care. Being prepared for these types of emergencies ahead of time will allow you to remain calm so you can provide the best possible care for the children and families enrolled in your program.

School-age children are often in your care from age 5 to age 12. These school-age years are an excellent time for youngsters to learn to develop community commitment, learn the arts and become part of a society that they enrich. Many high schools are requiring students to complete a certain amount of community involvement before they can graduate. And many colleges are looking to accept students that are going to make their campuses a better place for everyone. You can help school-agers get on the right track by instilling in them a sense of community pride and encouraging them to get involved in causes they believe in.

During this very important training, we will discuss general safety rules you should follow every day. We’ll discuss the difference between evacuation and shelter-in-place situations and review the plan you should have in place for each. We’ll also discuss how to communicate these plans with the families you provide care for — before and during the emergency situation. Fee: Location: Date: Time: OCFS Area: CDA Goal:

During this training we’ll look at ways you can manage your program activities to balance the needs of the youngest children in your care as well as helping school-age children explore their creative sides. We’ll discuss how to help school-age children use their creative talents to help make the community they live in a better place for all. We’ll explore the importance of providing school-age children with many opportunities to develop their creativity through music, poetry and art and look at how using those creative skills can make a difference when the children use them to become involved in community improvement activities.

NAVIGATE YOUR WAY TO THE CDA Earn Your CDA With Child Care Solutions The Child Development AssociateŽ (CDA) is the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education (ECE) and is a key stepping stone on the path of career advancement in ECE. The CDA credential is based on a core set of competency standards, which guide early child care professionals as they work toward becoming qualified teachers of young children. CDAs have knowledge of how to put the CDA Competency Standards into practice and understanding of why those standards help children move with success from one developmental stage to another. Put simply, CDAs know how to nurture the emotional, physical, intellectual, and social development of children. Earning the CDA Credential has many advantages, including exposure to the larger community of early childhood educators. Over 275,000 educators have received their CDA to date! Becoming a CDA is a big commitment, but one that creates confident practitioners with command of today’s best practices for teaching young children.

ON-LINE MAT + SKILL SESSION

GET YOUR MAT CERTIFICATION (Medication Administration Training)

Child Care Solutions offers two ways to obtain your MAT Certification. Our Online + Skill Session Course is for the student who likes the convenience of completing the classroom training at home or work at a time that works for them. Our Full Day MAT Course is for the student who prefers the structure of a classroom setting.

Child care regulations for all licensed and registered programs have specific requirements for giving medication to children. MAT certification is required for all child care staff and providers in licensed or registered programs who wish to administer medication to children. CPR and First Aid certification is also required.

Child Care Solutions offers the option to take MAT using an online class format followed by an in-person skills session with an instructor. You do the on-line portion whenever it is convenient for you. You must successfully complete that prior to attending the skill session. A written test and skill session will be done at our location. You will earn certification after practicing and demonstrating MAT skills. Here is an explanation of how these courses work: 1. You must have a working e-mail account. 2. Choose the skill session date below that you want to attend, allow for enough time to obtain materials and be able to take the on-line course. 3. Register and pay for the course. Details will be emailed to you after registration. 4. Take the on-line course. You must complete this before attending the scheduled skill session date. 5.
