FREE Daycare Worker training starts Monday, April 11th

Tri-County Literacy Council’s mission is to help adults in our community develop skills to be successful in the workplace. On April 11, 2022, we will offer FREE in-person Daycare Worker training. The 6-week program will run Monday to Thursday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. allowing the possibility for students to connect with each other and network with individuals in the field. Topics of study will include:

  • Children’s developmental stages
  • Behavioral issues
  • Meal and lesson planning
  • Daycare rules and regulations
  • Children’s rights

Students will also benefit from meeting a variety of guest speakers in the field such as a local dietician, early years specialists, and a guidance counsellor to explore further educational opportunities. A representative from the City of Cornwall will explain how to start a home daycare centre.

Tina Lauzon, a previous student from the program, mentioned This is a great opportunity to help you prepare for a job and to learn valuable knowledge of the field… It’s a fun learning environment and the people make you feel welcome. This training also made me aware of other community programs and offers, as well as how to go about opening my own home daycare.”
