Putting it all together


The training takes a hands-on interactive approach. The objective is for administrators, owners and home child care providers to develop systems that successfully demonstrate how to effectively set, implement, and evaluate their own program’s organizational structure. It will also provide a framework to communicate staff performance expectations and to apply current theory of a research based curriculum to support individual and group growth.  It explores systems to manage the referral process for children and the value of documenting the developmental progress of individual children.
