Online Training for Child Care Staff
Child care center staff in New York City have a new way to learn about the signs and symptoms of child abuse. Tune In for Child Safety Training is a comprehensive program designed to help child care center workers learn the indicators of possible maltreatment, as well as steps to take if a worker suspects that a child may have been abused or maltreated. The training manual is accompanied by a DVD that can be viewed via a scheduled television program or online.
Tune In for Child Safety was developed by the Mayor's Interagency Task Force on Child Welfare and Safety, the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Directors and trainees log in to use the site, obtain materials, and affirm their compliance with the training.
