Professional Development

Thank You!

2017 was a transitional year for the early childhood community, but with the commitment of agencies in each region throughout the state, we were able to coordinate a number of training opportunities and offer support to help with meeting new licensing requirements and move forward with professional development. We’d like to offer a great thank you to all of those who partnered with Vermont Birth to Five to ensure a host of trainings were offered in 2017:

 Family Center at NCSS Mary Johnson Children’s Center  
 Child Care Resource Orange County Parent Child Center
 VSA Vermont Family Center of Washington County
 Mud City Kids Building Bright Futures (St. Johnsbury)
 VT Center for the Book Sunrise Family Resource Center
 Winston Prouty Center  

As we look forward, the Community College of Vermont and Northern Lights will work together to coordinate further training opportunities in each region.
