Child Care Referrals

We believe all parents and guardians should have equal access to information regarding available child care services. This is why we provide a child care referral list of licensed child care program providers to use when searching for child care. This information is provided free of charge. However, the information we provide is not meant to be a recommendation. We only provide parents and guardians with the information–it’s up to them to make their own decisions. We cannot guarantee or vouch for the quality of any provider or program included on a child care referral list. We urge all parents and guardians to look into each program and find one that fits their unique needs.

Trauma Informed Care Training

Trauma Informed Care and Coaching are important strategies to identify the cause and effects of trauma and learn tools to heal from trauma. During this training, participants will learn how experiences, including neglect, trauma, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) affect brain development, how to identify, prevent and heal from trauma, as well as plan support and services through the lens of “what happened to you” rather than “what’s wrong with you.”

Child Care Initiative Project

The Child Care Initiative Project (CCIP) is a training program to assist aspiring home-based child care providers improve the quality of care they offer.
