Reduction in Training Costs
Effective May 1, 2017, the Community Child Care Clearinghouse of Niagara is reducing the cost of our two--hour trainings to $10.00 per participant. We hope this reduction in training cost will make it easier for all child care providers to obtain 30 hours of training every two years as required by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services child day care regulations.
