In the ever-evolving field of childcare, continuous learning and professional #development are paramount. Childcare providers in New York understand the significance of staying up-to-date with the latest practices and approaches in #early-childhood education. One of the key players in this arena is the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) and their Aspire Registry. This system has redefined the way childcare professionals engage in ongoing education and training. ChildCareEd, as a registered training organization within the Aspire Registry, offers a gateway to not only meeting training requirements but excelling in the field.

ChildCareEd and Aspire Registry

ChildCareEd, an internationally accredited organization, offers a comprehensive range of continuing education and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) focused on #early-childhood-education (ECE). As a registered training organization within the registry, ChildCareEd has the privilege of providing courses that qualify for OCFS training credits. This partnership ensures that their offerings meet the stringent standards set by OCFS.

Additionally, ChildCareEd is recognized as an Educational Incentive Program (EIP) Training Organization. The Educational Incentive Program (EIP) is a scholarship program that helps child care providers pay for training and educational activities with the intent to build provider knowledge, skills, and competencies in order to improve the quality of child care. To be eligible for EIP, child care providers must be required to take training and must be caring for children in a program regulated by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (NYS OCFS) or the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH).

For more information or scholarship inquiries, individuals can visit the EIP website or get in touch with EIP via email at If phone communication is preferred, two numbers are available, (800) 295-9616 and (518) 442-6575.

Course Formats for All Learning Preferences

One of the defining features of ChildCareEd's courses is their adaptability to various learning preferences. Whether you prefer the flexibility of self-paced online courses or the interactive experience of virtual instructor-led training, ChildCareEd has you covered.

ChildCareEd's online self-paced courses empower learners to complete their training on their terms. These courses can be undertaken at your convenience, making them an ideal choice for busy childcare professionals. Additionally, ChildCareEd goes the extra mile by offering courses in multiple languages, excluding media elements. This inclusivity caters to a diverse audience, with courses available in languages such as Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Urdu, Farsi, and more. This commitment to accessibility ensures that learners can engage with the material in the language they are most comfortable with.

In-person courses, conducted via the Zoom platform, provide an interactive and engaging environment where learners can connect with instructors and fellow participants, fostering a sense of community and collaborative learning.

The Aspire Registry offers a range of features and benefits that help childcare providers, #educators, and professionals in these fields in various ways:
