This training is closed.

CCR&R welcomes you to a Director's Day Training Luncheon as staff from the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA) join us locally to present

"The Focus is on YOU"  -  A workshop for professional development knowledge and skills.

Child care program quality is only as good as the quality of staff in the program. Program accreditation from NAEYC, NFCCA, and ExceleRate Illinois are all raising the bar for quality care for children.  Each of these program quality accreditations have a significant focus on staff professional development. This workshop can help you be prepared and be successful in helping both you and your staff develop appropriate, achievable and documented professional development plans.

Child care center directors and administrators often struggle with professional development planning for themselves and their staff.  Knowledge and skills needed for professional development planning are frequently not found in college course work or even at professional conferences and other trainings.

The Focus is on YOU helps you untangle the professional development planning maze. This workshop, Registry approved for 3.0 hours, offers research to support the notion that continuing education makes a difference in quality. The Focus is on YOU, also looks at why the private sector spends BILLIONS in training and education each year.

Also covered are some important components of quality professional development planning whether for one’s self or for others.  This workshop reviews the following topics:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • networking
  • motivation  
  • Identifying and understanding common barriers to progress
  • Strategies for working with others
  • Using the Registry Professional Development Record for planning

The Focus is on YOU provides an array of tools and activities to help each attendee assist professional development planning with new confidence and skill.  A self-assessment tool, guide to barriers and a Planning document are all included. Individual and group activities are built into this 3.0 hour session presented locally by INCCRRA staff. 

This workshop is Gateways Registry Approved and all attending will be given training credit hours credit on their individual Professional Development Record (PDR).
