Basic Courses

These basic courses from ECEP are the foundation of all our classes. They are beneficial to anyone new to the early childhood profession. They target the essential principles of early child care and are great refresher courses to enroll in.

All ECEP courses are free for anyone to attend.


All Early Childhood Educators

 

CCOT

FCCP is required in Arkansas for all newly licensed/registered providers within the first six (6) months of being licensed or registered and fulfills the orientation hours for family child care providers required by the Division.
