Meet the Active Supervision TOT cohort!

Early childhood educators and providers across Minnesota receive trainings that help them grow as professionals. The trainings are part of a large library maintained by Minnesota’s Department of Human Services (DHS). The people who lead these trainings go through their own trainings to learn how to do it. Those are called Trainings of Trainers (TOTs), and they are offered by the TARSS program at CEED.

Just recently, DHS updated its Active Supervision training, which is a very important required training for child care providers in Minnesota. 77 trainers applied to join the Active Supervision TOT in order to become approved to deliver this training.
