Training, education and experience are essential in the early childhood education field. As a licensed provider it is your responsibility, and a requirement, to obtain a minimum of 15 initial credit hours to obtain your license and complete twelve (12) hours each year thereafter. Be informed that the hours will increase to sixteen (16) hours in 2020. Please see the KDHE update on the supporting organizations page.
