Training That Fits The Bill (AND Minimum Standards)

With the passing of Senate Bill 265 in late spring 2011, a law now specifies eligibility criteria for a trainer in the state of Texas. The new law specifies that a trainer must fall into at least one of seven categories of trainer eligibility. P.A.R.A. Childcare Training is owned and operated by Amy Moore, a Texas based Early Childhood Education Trainer. P.A.R.A. / Amy Moore has provided training across Texas since 2005 and meets the requirement criteria in two separate categories specified by law. All certificates contain a Texas Trainer Statement of Eligibility that meets the requirement for supplying necessary info to childcare licensing. When you use P.A.R.A. Childcare Training to help meet your annual training requirements, you can train with confidence that your training really does....fit the bill!

P.A.R.A. is dedicated to providing Practical, Accurate, Reliable, and Applicable training resources for childcare providers. Our training materials meet and exceed the annual requirements for license renewal, and are accepted in MOST states. We suggest that if you do not live in Texas, you take a quick look at your licensing standards before selecting your courses.

Our commitment is to the childcare professionals that we reach through our educational materials, and the children they care for. If we can find ways through training to both educate and inspire you, then we are also making a positive impact in the lives of the children you care for!

  • Need CEU's

    Please note that CEU's provided by P.A.R.A. are not transferable to college credits. They are used by our company as a way to help ensure successful completion and accountability of course material completed by childcare providers / teachers. In many cases our CEU's are accepted by other companies for CDA or credential renewal but each organization has their own renewal policies and we recommend that you check on this before registration or course purchase. Thank you!
