Connecticut & Lillio Academy

Can I use Lillio Academy for PD hours in Connecticut?

Yes! Lillio Academy can be used toward professional development in Connecticut since the state approves all PD to count toward hours and does not approve individual organizations. We are currently inquiring about CTAEYC and the OEC Registry.

Please Note: All Webinars and Lillio Basic Courses must NOT be submitted to your registry. They do not meet specific learning requirements for the state and will not be accepted if submitted

Sign up for Lillio Academy to complete your professional development hours at your convenience! You can work at your own pace from wherever you want. Once you complete a course, you can download your certificate! 

Connecticut Childcare Training Requirements:

The state of Connecticut requires that program staff complete professional development equivalent to one (1) percent of the total annual hours worked. Training may include but is not limited to:

  • Early childhood education and child development

  • Licensing and regulations

  • Health issues

  • Nutrition

  • First aid

  • Social services

  • Child abuse laws

  • Programming for children with disabilities or special health care needs

In accordance with section 19a-79-3a, the operator of the child day care center or group day care home shall be responsible for participation by new staff in employee orientation and assure annual training for all current staff on the child day care center or group day care home policies, plans, and procedures. They are also responsible for developing, implementing, and maintaining a written plan for professional development in child care. This written professional development plan must be documented and made available for review (section 19a-79-4a).

Though Lillio attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, educators are individually responsible for understanding the submission and approval process of all professional development and licensing work in their state.
