What is Technical Assistance?  Click here for our Technical Assistance flyer!

Technical Assistance refers to many different ways that we can help you when it comes to the day to day running of your child care program.  We can come right to your location to offer direct observation, consultation, and discussion. We can provide feedback and help with your room arrangement, playground equipment, learning materials, and/or daily schedule to name a few things.  Sometimes making a few small changes in one or more of those areas can help improve your environment and behavior in your child care setting in dramatic ways.  We can even help with business management or staffing questions.  Take advantage of this FREE service and call our office to schedule an appointment time that is convenient for you.  There are many reasons that some coaching from a trained professional can help you improve your program or classroom. Sometimes we can give advice over the phone and/or send information via e-mail. Other situations may require more help or a visit at your site.  Please talk to us about how we can help address the unique needs of your child care setting.
