No matter what our role is in childcare, we share a common goal: to provide quality
group care for infants and toddlers. But what does that look like? In this training, we will
discuss evidence-based practices and policies that support the high-quality infant
toddler care we strive to provide. As we discuss quality infant- toddler care practices and
how different programs approach implementing these practices, we will reveal the
benefits for children and their caregivers. We will look at six essential program policies
that support relationship- based strategies in childcare and examine your beliefs and
philosophy as they relate to evidence-based quality group care.

Smart Start of Davie County will continue to provide free training for teachers who serve children birth to five in Davie County, unless otherwise noted below*. Please note, there is a $10 fee for teachers who serve children outside of Davie County ($40 for CPR +First Aid).
If you must cancel, please remove yourself from the training sign up and contact Katie Speer at 336.751.2113 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least 3 business days prior to the meeting. A $10 no-show fee will be charged to those that sign up for a class but do not attend. This fee must be paid before signing up for any other class through Smart Start of Davie County. Space is limited in each class and no-shows take a training opportunity away from another child care professional.
