The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 included changes that will impact South Dakota families and child care providers.  As part of the new law, child care providers will need to complete orientation training related to specific health and safety training topics. Current child care staff and providers will need to complete the training by July 1, 2017 (pending federal approval).  After July 1, 2017, newly hired child care staff or newly registered family child care providers will need to complete orientation training within 90 days of hire or registration. Early Childhood Connections is committed to supporting providers in meeting this new requirement by offering information regarding the Orientation requirements as well as resources to assist you in accessing orientation training.  We all want to make children’s health and safety a priority in South Dakota.  Together, we can work to make that happen. What previous ECC trainings count to meet orientation requirements? Many Orientation Training topics (1 through 9 below) are now available online 24/7 through On-Demand courses through Desire 2 Learn (D2L).
