CAFAF Post-Licensing Module Classes

The training classes in our program are referred to as “Modules.” Parents participate only in the modules that will best help develop their competencies as determined during the mutual assessment process with their DCF FASU Support Worker (for more information on DCF Mandatory Post-Licensing Training Requirements click here). CAFAF Training Modules are available to any DCF/Private Agency licensed home. Private Agency licensed homes must seek out-of-pocket childcare and transportation cost reimbursement through their licensing Private Agency. If you have questions, comments or need more information please contact
Vanessa Williamson | Program Director
