If you are opening a day care home in Illinois, you might be wondering “How can I complete my Illinois day care home pre-service training?” or “Where can I get 15 hours of pre-service training for my Illinois day care home?”
If you need to complete the 15 clock hours of pre-service training to open up a day care home or group day care home in Illinois, Care Courses is here to help!
Care Courses can be used for the majority of the Illinois day care home pre-service training requirements. Here’s how:
- The course Keeping Infants Safe is accepted for the Illinois Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID), and Safe Sleep training requirements.
- Along with Keeping Infants Safe, you can take either Inclusive Early Childhood Programs OR Managing Health and Safety in Child Care for your pre-service training requirement. Both courses are approved by Illinois for pre-service training and you only need to choose one.
You must also take Mandated Reporter Training to complete the pre-service training requirement for Illinois day care homes. The Mandated Reporter Training is offered by the IL Department of Children & Family Policy (DCFS).
All Care Courses are accepted by IL DCFS for in-service training clock hours as well.
