TOP Star Training
Welcome to the online TOP Star training! Whether you're a child care provider in a home, center or preschool, this is the required training to obtain a TOP Star Endorsement for your facility.
The TOP Star training is comprised of six workshops about preventing childhood overweight. This training is approved by the Office of Child Care and Utah Registry for Professional Development (URPD) for six hours of continuing education credit. These hours may be put towards professional development credit such as Child Development Associate (CDA), Licensing Requirement, or Career Ladder Credit (CLC).
Please contact your local TOP Star Consultant and she/he will direct you to the training link for the six modules (for the six hours of free continuing education credit). Your local TOP Star Consultant will explain the TOP Star endorsement process for your child care facility and the many benefits this program brings to you, the staff and the children.
When you start the training, you will watch each module in sequence. Each module has brainstorming activities and handouts that you will download and use as part of the training. Your TOP Star Consultant will provide a short quiz (one for each module) that you will take before receiving your certificate of completion. Your certificate may be uploaded to your Care About Childcare provider profile for Career Ladder Credits.
Thank you for your interest in TOP Star. Enjoy the training and have fun!
