    Hello Everyone. Im new to the group but my question pertains to certification. What kinds of coursework does a provider take to become certified in either early childcare, daycare worker, or owner of a daycare? Looking for generalized coursework not the entire gamit. Thank you.

    Danielle, basic certification as you are asking about is determined state by state. Find out the stat level agency that licenses child care centers and start there. In my state public school teachers (and schools) are certified by the Departmern to Education and child care staff (and centers) by the Child Development Bureau in the Department of Health and Human Services. The overlap is minimal, I'm afraid.
