Child care providers are hearing a lot about “quality.” One reason for this is YoungStar – Wisconsin’s child care quality rating and improvement system. Another is the training all Wisconsin providers are required to complete each year to keep current with regulatory requirements. All training – including that which focuses on YoungStar – help providers deliver quality care to young children.
WECA’s statewide and Milwaukee County trainings, as well as our annual conference, have been designed to help get you where you want to go. Whether it is taking trainings specific to YoungStar, completing continuing education requirements, or learning to advance your skill set, WECA has something to offer you. In 2011, we educated nearly 500 early education professionals at our annual conference in Appleton. We offered an additional 50 workshops throughout the year with sessions including activities-based curriculum, action planning, cultural sensitivity, and WMELS.
