No cost training for early childhood centers and in-home child care providers

Posted on:

Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) will host three Ohio Healthy Program (OHP) training sessions at the Child Care Resource Center, 5350 Oberlin Ave. in Lorain, OH. The sessions include 15 hours of Ohio Approved training for administrators, teachers and cooks at no cost.

“Healthy habits are best started at an early age,” says LCPH Health Commissioner David Covell, MPH, RS. “Childhood centers and in-home child care providers play an important role – they help promote healthy weight and prevent childhood obesity in the children they care for.”

At the OHP training, attendees will: learn about fresh, tasty, kid-friendly menu options; receive a toolkit of activities and easy-to-use resources; and get tips to help families create healthy habits at home. Sessions run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

  • Session 1 (ID# ST10080839): All staff attend May 7, May 14, May 28 and June 4 for a total of 10 hours of Ohio Approved training on healthy habits. Teachers and administrators must attend all four parts of this session to earn credit for the Ohio Approved training.
  • Session 2 (ID# ST10080845): Cooks attend June 12 for 2.5 hours of Ohio Approved training.
  • Session 3 (ID# ST10080846):  Administrators attend June 19 for 2.5 hours of Ohio Approved training.
