Trainings are being offered at no charge to licensed child care providers in Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Lake, Koochiching, and St. Louis counties. Providers may attend any or all of the trainings. Individuals who are not licensed child care providers, such as foster care providers, are welcome but must pay the training fee. Trainings are being held in a number of different cities.

Advance registration is required. To register, call the Northland Foundation at 218-723-4040 or 800-433-4045. You will be asked to provide your name, address, phone number, email, and “Develop” number, if applicable. The training schedule is subject to change based on number of registrations and trainer availability. Also, please note that on-site child care is not available, so children should not attend any of the trainings.

The free trainings are made available through the Parent Aware Pathways Initiative, which is a collaboration of the Northland Foundation and Child Care Aware Minnesota-Northeast District. The program is designed as an enhancement to the Parent Aware Quality Rating process. More details are available at www.northlandfdn.org/convening .
