You can ask the director of the daycare center/preschool to see your childs teacher's credentials. I work as a 2 year old preschool teacher and my state requires that I have 16 hours of annual training. 2 hours of safety, 2 hours of child abuse, and 2 hours of infectious diseases, plus 10 hours of my choice. However, my director requires that we have 30 hours of annual training. Any of my parents can ask me or the director to see my certificates. I have a copy of them in the office and in my room.
