HOW? PASO is and intensive 120 hour early childhood education program. The PASO training is accomplished through the presentation of 30 separate 4-hour seminar classes by the Program Trainers – referred to in the program as Tías, or “aunties” – over a period of 15 weeks. This training is supplemented by 3 home based visits that occur throughout the 15 weeks by the Tias( trainers) to respond to questions, make sure all the relevant points were understood by the caregivers, and to discuss with them how the information might be applied to the care and education the caregivers are providing to the children. PASO FFN providers receive certification in First Aid, CPR, Universal Precautions, and Medication Administration.
WHAT? The PASO Program also administers training to caregivers to help them convert an area in their homes into learning centers for small children.
PASO prepares FFN Providers to apply the Child Development Associate certification (CDA), a National Credentialing Program based out of Washington DC. PASO assists FFN providers to apply for the CDA and demonstrate their knowledge of the CDA’s six competency standards and thirteen functional areas.
PASO hosts several community events that bring all the children and families of the PASO providers together to learn and socialize. PASO changes the lives of the women in the program but most importantly PASO prepares our youngest and most vulnerable population to be ready for Kindergarten and school success.
