Tammy can offer many training through Child Care Aware that offer many approved workshops including many of the Parent Aware classes required for the Parent Aware Rating Program. Parent Aware’s Star Ratings help parents find programs that go above and beyond to prepare children for school and life. Our One- to Four-Star Rating system – a free service – measures best practices identified by research that help children succeed. Participating programs have: • Volunteered for extra, in-depth training • Devoted themselves to strong, caring relationships with each child • Adopted the latest approaches to keeping children’s learning on track • Committed to daily activities and routines that help children learn • Placed a focus on children’s health and safety. An accelerated pathway to a Parent Aware rating is currently available to certain types of programs (accredited child care, Head Start and public school pre-kindergarten programs) statewide. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) leads Parent Aware in coordination with the Minnesota Office of Early Learning. Child Care Aware of Minnesota is working in local communities to share the Ratings with parents and prepare child care and early education programs.
