The 20 Hour Responsible Adult: Professional Development for Child Care Providers Level 1 course includes the necessary components for a participant to meet the training requirements as a Responsible Adult.

According to provincial child care licensing regulations in British Columbia, a person must be at least 19 years of age, be able to provide care and guidance to children, and have completed at least 20 hours of course work in child development, guidance, and health, safety and nutrition in order to qualify for employment as a ‘Responsible Adult’ in a child care setting.
Participants taking level 1 will get a certificate for 20 hours of Responsible Adult professional development.

It is recommended that participants set aside two to three homework hours for each lesson and allow themselves a comfortable time and place that will be free from disruptions. Students should be prepared to ask any questions to the facilitator during the scheduled Zoom meetings.

Scenario-based learning allows learners to view situations from different perspectives, encouraging thoughtful reflection. Applying learning in a more practical way can help to build confidence and gives the learner the ability to transfer knowledge to real-life work. You will see how best practices might look in action, determine alternate strategies you could implement in these situations, and reflect on your own experiences as a care provider.

Your task is to take on the perspective of the provider within the scenario and determine:

  • What worked well?
  • What, if anything, could be done differently?

Remember, it is not the job of providers to diagnose children. Instead, we can do our best to create safe childcare ecosystems that promote social emotional well-being and support children and their diverse range of behaviours. This will be important to keep in mind while navigating the scenarios in Module 4.
