The Division of Child Care is excited to announce Child Care Orientation materials have been translated into Spanish to better serve our diverse workforce. Child Care Aware of Kentucky is currently developing a Spanish version of ECOOL (Early Care Orientation OnLine) on HDI Learning – University of Kentucky Human Development Institute with an expected release in the spring for providers and staff with Spanish as their preferred language to complete orientation online.
For Credentialed Trainers Level 3 and higher that have the fluency and proficiency to provide the requirements of Orientation in Spanish, contact your Child Care Aware Training Coach for details on the upcoming Trainer of Trainer Introduction to Orientation. Orientation trainers that are not fluent in Spanish should refer all Spanish speaking providers to ECOOL or another trainer offering Orientation fluently.
