The education and experience of a child care provider directly affects the quality of a child care program. It is our goal, at the Camden County Department of Children’s Services, to offer our child care providers the opportunity to enhance their education through various workshops and trainings throughout the year. Our Spring Child Care Conference is our largest professional development event that draws over 200 participants annually. We welcome all child care providers, parents, and community members for a full day of interaction and learning. A variety of workshops are offered that address child development, health and safety, developmentally appropriate practices, administrative procedures and many other current topics of interest.
