Navigating in the Early Childhood System for New Center Hires and New Home Care Providers

March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Three kids sitting and writing, learning together at daycare

Most new early childhood professionals came to their job because they like children and want to have an impact with their development. But many of the first steps for a new hire in the field are met with paperwork, setting up training accounts, understanding safe systems, etc.  Also, many managers are stretched thin that their time for hands-on help with these tasks is limited.  This training will assist both the new staff and managers in completing parts of this onboarding process.  Participants will learn about Gateways, the why and how, and actually walk through the process of setting up and account and learning how to use it to manage professional development requirements. We will look at scholarship assistance through Gateways and ECACE as well as review required trainings and how to self-report them.  Finally, we will review the supports available through 4-C.  **Participants are encouraged to bring their personal laptops to practice as they are learning**

Trainer: Maggie Fern, 4-C Recruitment, Retention, Referral, and Outreach Specialist
