Can you answer the following questions in reference to Child Care Sanitation: What are the classroom requirements for child care centers located in schools? Can bulk food be served in the classroom without a separate handwash sink? What is the protocol for a “summary of disapproval”? What are water emergency procedures in child care centers? How long can human milk be left out at room temperature? If you can’t answer these questions then this SOP Course is for you!

This program has been designed for North Carolina environmental health specialists, child care development consultants, child health consultants, school child care administrators responsible for the inspection, monitoring, evaluation, plan review, and grading of child care facilities in North Carolina.  Supervisors or administrators who have consulting and decision-making responsibilities with specialists will also benefit from attending this program. There are new responsibilities ahead for environmental health specialists as both public and private school child care centers grow and expand their operations.

The purpose of this workshop is to teach participants how to work effectively with the Division of Child Development and Early Education Regional Consultants, the Department of Insurance, Fire Marshals, and the Regional Specialists of Children’s Environmental Health while conducting thorough and professional child care inspections.  This course also focuses on rule interpretation and policy procedures that can support and guide you in your daily work routine.
