It stands for Early Childhood Education – Training Resources Information System and it is the official system for the State of Kentucky to track continuing education credit, a requirement for licensed early childcare educators, in Kentucky. The training programs and workshops provided for free through the Play Planning Grants are pre-approved for credit. In essence, receiving a Play Planning Grant means you are also receiving free staff training in the process. Continuing education credit may not be of importance to you. In that case the training programs provide you with a more complete understanding of play environments prior to planning.
