Training for Child Care Providers


Starting January 2020, classes will no longer be restricted to Snohomish County child care and early learning providers. They will be open to anyone.

The Snohomish Health District Board of Health has mandated a fee for Child Care Heath Outreach Program STARS Trainings beginning in January 2020.   

A fee of $10.00 per STARS credit will be charged. Classes will continue to be free of charge if STARS credits/certificate are not desired. 


All ongoing classes must be completed by the end of December, 2019 for STARS credit.
