Best Care Update for Jackson, Lonoke, White, & Woodruff Counties

Because of the current state of Covid-19 in Arkansas, your BEST bet to get your hours this year will probably be online training for Best Care.. We're including all the information in this email (just below)! If at all possible, please try this method first and get the hours that you need.
If you (or someone else in your center) are completely unable to do online, we hope to have a face-to-face class on April 10. This is tentative and depends on the COVID-19 conditions in April. But please do not count on everyone coming - we will be very limited on the number of people that will be able to attend. If at all possible, please get your hours online. We will send out another email around the end of February/first of March about this face-to-face training and how to sign up.
We have 10 hours of Best Care Training, 5 hours of Best Care Connected (beginning Feb. 1, 2021), along with 39 hours of Guiding Children Successfully. Check out all of  these ONLINE options for training!
For those of you who work with school-age children, the Best Care Out of School Time courses (5 hours) will be available until March. In April, 5 MORE hours will become available. Check out for the current courses.
Questions? Contact the agent in your county (top left - Quick Links, Counties).
