TRAINING

Training child care providers to be outstanding caregivers is at the very core of our mission at Rainbow Fleet. We offer numerous educational opportunities each month covering various child care topics including safe sleep, first aid, operations, room arrangement, child development and many more. All of our training can be applied toward the DHS licensing requirements and also qualifies for Stars training credits. To learn more about Stars training credits, click here.

Rainbow Fleet also offers free coaching for childcare providers. We are here to support childcare professionals in reaching their goals, and coaching bridges the gap by putting ideas into practice.
