Child Development Programs

Resources for Early Educators

We offer professional development to early educators, assist families in finding child care and provide concrete data to lawmakers to help create a better system of care for children from birth to 13.

The information and services we offer to families, early educators and policy makers are designed to ensure that all children have access to quality child care where they feel nurtured, safe, healthy and learning to their potential.
