Child Care Centers or early childhood groups may request these trainings. The cost (for up to 25 participants) is $100 for each hour of training. For example, a 2.5 hour class would cost $250; a 1.5 hour class would cost $150. All materials are provided and fees must be paid in advance. Workshops can be held at WGTE for no additional charge. Workshops off-site may be subject to an additional travel cost.
