Training/Professional Development

Milestones is committed to helping you find great educational opportunities to assist you in positively impacting the lives of children. 


Child Care Aware is contracted by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to provide training and educational opportunities that are anchored in Minnesota's Core Competencies for Early Childhood Education and School-Age Care Practitioners, and to provide practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to ensure that all children and youth are ready for and succeed in school.

Child Care Aware of MN provides thousands of trainings per year in communities across the state and online that seek to positively impact the experience of children in all child care settings by expanding the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs of individuals who care for them, leading to improved practice by child care practitioners and healthy outcomes for children.
