11 Summer 2013 IMPORTANT INFORMATION 9 Important Information Training Level Descriptions In order to meet the diverse needs of caregivers and teachers, trainings are offered at three levels: Introductory: Introductory trainings outline basic information related to a subject matter and are designed for individuals who may not have prior knowledge or experience in a particular topic. The trainings provide concrete, useful tools and information to be utilized in the child care setting. They should be considered the first step in obtaining professional goals or serve as a refresher for the experienced provider. Intermediate: Intermediate trainings build upon prior knowledge of a subject matter. These trainings are designed for individuals who have a basic understanding of a subject. They may be offered in an individual or series format. Advanced: Advanced trainings are indepth and are designed to go beyond general information, guidelines, and concepts. Participants are required to utilize critical thinking skills and interpret specific aspects of a particular subject matter. These trainings encourage the use of application, collaboration, and/or reflection skills. Pre-registration is required; we are not able to accommodate walk-ins. To register, call the phone number listed for the workshop. Pre-payment may also be required and may be nonrefundable. How to Register Still As Easy as 1, 2, 3 1.

Why haven t I gotten any calls for my child care services? I need more children! If you have successfully completed all steps required to become listed on Illinois Action for Children s Referral Database, there are three main reasons why you may not be currently receiving calls from families needing child care: 1. If you live in an area where there are many other child care providers, parents may have found care in another program. 2. Parents may be looking for a specific type of child care such as evening care, part-time care, after-school care, care that accepts the Child Care Assistance Program, care in a particular area, etc. which may not match the description you gave of your program. Or, the family s child care needs may not match the care your program is licensed for at this time. 3. Illinois Action for Children s referral service provides families referral information from our database. Note: we do not give recommendations; ultimately, it is the parent who chooses which providers to contact and select for their child care needs. How can I become a licensed child care provider? Step 1: Connect with your local Community Partner (see page 4) and ask about training opportunities and resources around becoming a child care provider. Step 2: Call the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) at (312) and request an application packet for licensing. This is the licensing agency for Illinois. I am looking for money to start up a child care center. How do I begin? Illinois Action for Children does not currently offer direct funding opportunities for those interested in starting a child care program. However, we can provide a resource packet of contact information for agencies that provide other support and funding. Call (312) to request this packet.

Discipline is an important component assessed in the Environment Rating Scales. Discipline carries many meanings in our society. Some interpret the word to mean punishment. However, in a child care setting, discipline means guiding and directing children toward acceptable behavior. Helping children gain inner control is the most important goal of discipline. In doing so, the teacher must be clear, positive, and firm, starting with simple, clear rules and limits that children understand. The expectations for behavior must be age and developmentally appropriate and the guidance must be non-punitive and educationally sound. It is also a good idea to involve children in establishing classroom rules, as children are more likely to respect the rules when they have conflict and problems that may arise. Children need opportunities to talk out problems, think of solutions, and make decisions. Positive approaches to guiding behavior include: Planning ahead. Conflicts can be avoided by having duplicate toys accessible and providing smooth transitions. Being knowledgeable about the characteristics of different age groups and children. No single approach works for every child or every situation. Helping children use problem-solving skills Acknowledging children s feelings and sensitizing them to others feelings Observing the environment and looking for reasons why a child is misbehaving Children need to learn about rules, limits, and being responsible, but these behaviors cannot be forced upon them with long-term success. The emphasis should be on teaching self-discipline to children in a realistic way without demanding what children are not yet able to do.
