Child care providers who are looking to earn some credit hours from the comfort of their own home, take notice!
Read-A-Book is a distance learning self-study program developed by the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Development at the Virginia Department of Social Services.
The program offers two options:
Read and conduct activities with children using any two children’s literature books (up to 8 credit hours)
Read one professional book from a set list (6-10 credit hours)
There is a $20 processing fee for all submissions. All other materials are free.
