Reduce the Risk of SIDS in your Child Care!

FREE Online Training for Child Care Providers
PATCH recommends all child care providers take a free one hour course on preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

The facts:
SIDS is the leading cause of death for our young infants, age 1-12 months. Because we don't know what causes SIDS, safe sleep practices should be used to reduce the risk.

Safe Sleep Training:
AAP's online one hour training is free for child care providers.

To participate for free, use the promo code: SIDSCCP.

PDF instructions on taking the course and printing your certificate of completion are available at this link:
