TIPS Calendar

The TIPS (Training Information for Provider Success) Calendar is for private, non-profit, and governmental organizations to list early childhood professional development opportunities in Virginia and Washington D.C. The calendar may include classes for home-based and center-based child care providers, Head Start staff, home visiting professionals, early intervention staff, local school division teachers and staff and others who work directly with children.

The TIPS Calendar is not intended to give detailed information on an event. Individuals must contact the sponsor for details and registration.

The VDSS Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Development provides online courses available through the Community College Workforce Alliance and other options as listed in the child care professionals development catalog.
