Childcare teachers in Texas are required to complete 24 hours of annual training relevant to the age of the children being cared for and include a minimum of 20% instructor-led training.
At least one clock hour of the annual training hours must focus on the prevention, recognition, and reporting of child maltreatment.
H&H Child Care Training Center offers a 1-hour Abuse and Neglect training to help Texas providers complete this annual training requirement.
H&H also offers a 24-Hour Texas Teacher Annual training course.
This blended training includes 18 hours of self-paced online learning courses and 6 hours of virtual classroom learning. Regulation §746.1309 (g) indicates that “No more than 80% of the required annual training hours may come from self-instructional training.” This means that at least 4.8 hours of the 24-hour requirement should be completed in a facilitated, instructor-led class, or another approved format.
Professional preparation and ongoing professional development for the early childhood education workforce are essential to providing high-quality services to children and families. Statistics show that early childhood professionals who seek out opportunities for professional growth and collaboration stay in the field longer, improve stress levels, and enhance classroom management skills and teaching techniques. H&H Child Care Training Center understands the importance of high-quality professional development. We aim to support early childhood educators with meaningful trainings based on best practices.
