The Penn State Extension Better Kid Care program has been providing distance-delivered professional development to early childhood practitioners for more than 20 years. Better Kid Care is now offering a new on-demand system for online learning. Lessons are completed with a short assessment following each lesson. Participants must register and pay a $5.00 fee per lesson to receive professional development credits. After payment and successful completion of the lesson assessment, participants will be able to print a certificate of completion and/or have it sent to their email address.
For a limited time, licensed child care providers in Marion, Hamilton, Johnson, Lake, and Allen counties may complete the lessons at no cost, as part of a Department of Defense-funded project.
To access the Better Kid Care On Demand lessons, visit http://extension.psu.edu/cyttap. Click on the Distance Education button, then select On Demand distance education option. Participants must have a credit card and email address to access the On Demand Better Kid Care distance education lessons. There are 50 professional development lessons available (1 hr. and 2 hr.) but check back frequently as new lessons are being offered monthly.
These trainings count toward licensing requirements and the professional development clock hour requirements for Paths to QUALITY.
