Courses and Training

Online Courses

Finding time to fit classes into a busy schedule can be a challenge, especially when travel is required. Through online learning, KCCTO offers an easy solution!

Based on up-to-date early care and education curriculum, courses are taught by experienced and degreed professionals in early childhood education. Take courses from a remote location in Kansas at times that are convenient for you, all while receiving the quality training needed to meet licensing regulations and to advance professional growth.

KCCTO offers more than 80 online courses that are designed to address the needs of child care providers and focus on issues of building a child care service or improving the quality of service to children and families. Because of the interactive nature of the courses, trainers are able to guide and respond to individual questions of child care providers and tailor answers to the communities and families they serve. As a result, this online training content is responsive to different and varied populations.

In-Person Training

KCCTO offers support to an approved cadre of trainers for child care providers across the state through a library of the standardized, expertly-prepared curriculum. We also network with agencies and organizations interested in child care provider training. Our goal is to facilitate and augment, not to duplicate or replace current community training efforts.

Live Virtual Training

Live virtual training is a combination of online and in-person training. These professional development opportunities are provided during scheduled LIVE training periods on Zoom with brief follow-up activities on our Canvas learning management system. Meet “face-to-face” with KCCTO Training and Technical Assistance Specialists and child care providers from across the state, all from the comfort of your own home!
