Wisconsin’s Prevent Violence Against Children Act requires child care providers and preschool teachers to attend an approved training on Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention. Any licensee, operator, provider, employee, or substitute who provides care and supervision to children under age 5 in a certified or licensed child care center/home, including emergency back-up providers, and all persons providing care and supervision to children under age 5 in a child care program operated by a school district must receive training in Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), the effects of shaking a baby and ways to calm a crying, fussing or distraught child.

There are things that parents and caregivers can do to reduce the risk of SIDS death. During this training you will learn more about SIDS and how to prevent it. Anyone who cares for children less than 12 months of age in a certified child care program must be trained on SIDS risk reduction methods. This requirement pertains to the certified operator and any other providers, including substitutes, volunteers, helpers, employees and emergency back-up providers.
