Beginnings SC provides free, CCCCD-certified training to child care providers across SC.

These trainings are provided at your center at a time that works best for your staff.

We offer two training options (see descriptions below) – you may select one or both!

Why Take This Training?: One in 100 children have a hearing loss between the ages of 3 and 18 and in a classroom with 15 children, 13 might have an ear infection meaning 4-5 cannot currently hear. Understanding not only the impact of hearing loss but the frequency with which it can impact young children, will improve the outcomes for all children but specifically those with hearing loss.
