2017-2018 Child Care Training Schedule

(online registration links are below the training description)

General Training Information
SSDC will continue to provide free training for teachers who serve children in Davie County, unless otherwise noted below.  Please note, there is a $15 fee for teachers who serve children outside of Davie County. Payment must be received one week prior to the scheduled class.

** If you must cancel, please remove yourself from the training sign up and contact Kati Lawrence at 336-751-2113 or klawrence@daviesmartstart.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.
