Credentials

At Penny & Bear Family Childcare we believe education is the key to success. We are CPR certified and have Child Development training and courses. As a Provider and Owner, I have gone the extra mile to get my site rated by the Fresno County Early Stars Program, I have also obtained a CDA Credential and California Teacher's Permit to ensure I have the knowledge, training and excellent site needed to provide quality care and offer a great service. We continually work/train with Fresno County Early Stars Program, WestED, QRIS (Quality Rating and Improvement System), PITC (Progam for Infant and Toddler Care) and provide children's assessments to monitor their growth and development using DRDPtech.  Below you will find my diplomas and how to locate the credentials I have earned.
