Trauma-Informed Care for Child Care Program Directors (TICD)
The Department of Children and Families Office of Child Care Regulation is offering a new instructor-led course, Trauma-Informed Care for Child Care Program Directors.

Upon completion of this course, child care program directors will form a community of practice and will be able to:
Recognize the signs of trauma impacting children

Apply tools to help children regulate emotions and behaviors
Evaluate the physical learning environment for trauma-sensitive supports

This course can be used to meet the Florida Director Credential Renewal requirements.
