Child Care Providers participate in Health and Safety Training

On May 7, 2022, eight participants from three childcare centers on Saipan welcomed the month of May with another set of health and safety training sessions conducted by Evergreen Learning Quality Care Specialist, Mrs. Maricar I. Pena, at Evergreen Learning training center, in Chalan Kanoa, Saipan. The two training sessions, each two hours long, were on Precaution in Transporting Children and Building and Physical premises safety.

During the morning session on Precaution in Transporting Children, participants discussed the rationale for learning about safe transportation of children, identified hazards in and around vehicles, and determined ways to protect children from risk and injury from those hazards. Participants also learned how to choose the best safety seat for children. 

For the afternoon session on Building and Physical Premises Safety, participants reflected on childhood injury experiences, explored the need to learn about injuries and hazards in the childcare setting, outlined standard requirements for ensuring building and physical premises safety, discussed safety equipment, recalled requirements in compliance with fire prevention codes, and identified hazards in and around the premises, including the playground. 

The Child Care Reauthorization Act of 2014 requires that all CCDF providers must complete preservice training requirements in 12 topics areas before they can be left alone to work with young children.  Building and Physical Premises Safety and Precaution in Transporting Children meet these requirements.
